Curriculum Blind-spots: Creative Ways to Navigate the Curriculum for Gifted Learners
Creating differentiated learning experiences for gifted learners requires an analysis of the curriculum, as it currently exists. This session will focus on a series of strategies (learning centers, interactive bulletin boards, and inquiry pedagogy) that can be used to create differentiated and individualized learning experiences for gifted learners within the core curriculum. This session invites participants to engage in a curriculum writing workshop that uses their curriculum and/or lesson plans as the basis for differentiation. It is an anticipated goal of the session that participants leave with a restructured learning experience that has been reinforced, modified, and extended to meet the needs of the gifted learners in their classroom. Although this session welcomes all participants, a working knowledge of the elements of the GATE standards is preferred.

Fireside Chat with Scott Barry Kaufman

What is giftedness, really? Who should be identified as gifted? How can we increase representation of twice-exceptional students in gifted education? What should the goal of gifted education be? What is self-actualization and why is it important? Why should gifted educators care about self-actualization? Does creativity matter at all for gifted education?

These questions and more will be discussed in this fireside chat with humanistic psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman, author of Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined, Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind, and Transcend: The New Science of Self-Actualization.
