STRAND FOUR * NEW
Sat. & Sun. Ticket

The major goal of this conference is for participants to build expertise to understand the nature of gifted students and the teaching/learning strategies that affect them. To achieve this goal, this year’s conference has been organized into three strands: (a) Affective Development, (b) Classroom Practices, and (c) Gifted Polices, Programs and Services for Administrators and Teachers. The sessions within each strand have been selected to reinforce the competencies necessary to build expertise in each strand. It is encouraged that participants organize their conference experience around a major Strand and are welcome to participate in selected sessions in any strand.
