Do others give up when the work is too difficult? In this workshop we will examine the characteristics of gifted students and differentiation strategies that challenge and motivate them!

This session is based on experiences teaching gifted students, insights from research, and strategies from the guidelines in various states across the US. You will learn instructional strategies that will show you how to change your role from that of instructor to facilitator, coach, and audience.
