GIFTED AND HIGH-ABILITY LEARNERS: WHO
ARE THEY? IDENTIFICATION, COMMON MYTHS, & TEACHING STRATEGIES (ATT Course Code ID, CD, EP, SE)


In Jewish education, we have made great strides to acknowledge and serve every learner - creating programs for them and working to make our resource rooms welcoming and helpful. However, there is one learner that is often overlooked - the gifted/ high-ability learner. What does it mean to be gifted? Learn about some of the definitions and criteria for giftedness, debunk common myths and understand how we as educators can work to best serve this overlooked population.

We will also discuss some techniques to break down complex concepts so that students will have access to the learning.
