Are all students gifted in some way? 10/12/2011
Mrs. Sheffield sent me the link to this article and I thought I would pass it on here. It offers an interesting perspective on gifted education.
For me, I focused on the final question:" How do you identify, recognize, accept and utilize giftedness in your classroom?"
I think the answer to this question will vary for everyone and will evolve with time.
Why am I blogging? 10/05/2011
I have decided to start a blog for two purposes.
The first is to keep students, parents and teachers updated on the happenings of our talented and gifted program. I will share updates on program accomplishments , for example contest results and general program information.
The second is to share insights and articles that I have come across as I research other T.A.G. programs in our state and country. If I find an article I think is interesting or gives lesson plan ideas I will post it to my blog and explain why I chose it. If you follow me on twitter, I will also make an effort to post content articles on my twitter feed.
I will be blogging at a minimum on a weekly basis with the goal to post more often when the information warrants it! If you have questions or comments, please feel free to post to my site or email me!
