Program: Gifted and Enrichment Services/ IS

Audience: 2017-18 IU13 Gifted Network members; Gifted Support and General Education teachers

Dates: 2/6/2018

Last year, we explored resources and models that enable gifted support teachers to use assessments, instructional technology, and individualized instruction to meet student needs. We experienced blended learning in action, connected with colleagues, and learned from Colette Cairns and Ken Zimmerman. Upon request, we are continuing that discussion with teachers (including members of the Gifted Network) who have used the hybrid rotation model to create effective instruction for all students. A focus will be placed on serving advanced/gifted students. A Schoology Course was created last year by Colette and Ken to share resources. This will be reviewed at the meeting and can be accessed during and after the meeting to build your digital toolbox.

Registration begins at 8:00 AM.

15. Annual Goals and SDI: Training Using a Hybrid Rotation Model (PM session)

Program: Gifted and Enrichment Services/ IS

Audience: 2017-18 IU13 Gifted Network members; Gifted Support and General Education teachers

Dates: 2/6/2018

An important part of your work as a gifted support teacher is to craft individual plans for each student on your caseload. Focusing on the PLEP gathered for each student, you are tasked with creating one/two annual goals that focus upon his/her academic strength(s). Many resources are available to help you create plans that adhere to the guidance offered by PDE, but tackling this important issue in a Gifted Network Meeting has proved difficult. Therefore, we are trying a new approach that we hope will work successfully. Join us for an afternoon of working alongside your job-alike colleagues in a hybrid rotation training that focuses on writing annual goals and SDI. Through this model, you will be assigned to small job-alike groups for direct instruction/ discussion and collaborative work; and the third station will involve independent study. Our hope is that this meeting will result in “sample” goals that we can share and discuss as a network.

NOTE: If you attend the morning session (Blended Learning: Taking a Closer Look), there will be NO fee to attend this afternoon session. Fees will be adjusted after the session is complete.

Registration begins at 12:00 Noon.
