“Good learning for highly able learners”
Wednesday, February 11, 2015
7:30 – 9PM
Westmount Charter School: Mid-High Campus
2215 Uxbridge Drive NW
This event will look closely at the learning processes of high ability learners. How do they learn when they are deeply engaged? How is their learning the same and different from that of other children their age? What features of their learning can be adjusted to respond to their strengths? This session will include a bit of theory and introduce parents to the “Guide for Selecting Differentiation strategies”. At this session, participants will use a chart to help match different types of learning experiences to student strengths and explore a website loaded with resources to help parents and teachers support extraordinary potentials.
