Add on: Secondary Summit: Meeting the Needs of Advanced Secondary Students, Friday, December 2, 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.: $100
TAGT is offering an add-on summit ($100), available to attendees that also includes lunch.
How do you meet the needs of your gifted and advanced secondary students? What do you need in your secondary programs and how can you create differentiated, specialized curriculum for these students? Join fellow secondary educators and leaders in exploring how you can address the specific social-emotional, mental health, and academic needs of secondary students in this year’s Secondary Summit. Participants will network, identify needs specific to secondary G/T classrooms, hear from a panel of students, and begin to solve the challenges around meeting these students’ unique needs. Sponsored by Knowsys.

Gifted secondary students often have high academic and social expectations placed upon them while still discovering who they are as individuals. This session will address how student agency and self-advocacy can be further developed through personalized goal-setting focused on intrapersonal awareness, interpersonal skills, and application to the learning process.
