TAGT is offering two add-on summits, available to in-person attendees addressing Acceleration and Depth & Complexity. The summits will take place concurrently, so attendees are only able to register for one summit. Each summit will take place for 2 1/2 hours on Friday, December 3, and will include lunch.
Depth & Complexity Summit, Friday, December 3, 12:45 p.m.-3:30 p.m.
Join Depth & Complexity practitioner experts as they break down low-prep, classroom-proven techniques for using the D & C Icons and the framework’s other components in this interactive summit. Topics covered include successful strategies for introducing Depth and Complexity into instruction, subject-area application of D & C and Content Imperative Icons, prompting students think deeply about all content, and leveraging Depth and Complexity as an instructional model school/districtwide. Lunch provided. Sponsored by J Taylor Education/The Center for Depth and Complexity
Acceleration Summit, Friday, December 3, 12:45 p.m.-3:30 p.m.
Take part in deep, interactive coaching from University of Iowa’s Belin-Blank Center acceleration experts in the giftED21 Acceleration Summit.
