The Gifted Classroom: Back to School…For Parents!

Wednesday, January 21st at 6:30pm

Hillhurst School: 2nd level classroom (follow signs)

1418 7th Avenue NW


Parents recall what their early classroom learning was like, but how is gifted education different? Do we really know what school is like for our kids who attend the GATE Program? Why not find out for ourselves!

In this session, teachers in our elementary GATE Program will ‘put parents to work’ and guide us through a lesson, just like the ones our kids experience every day. The teachers will then discuss the gifted education methods that were just applied on us ‘students’, and used with gifted learners every day. The teachers will discuss the goal of gifted education and how these methods are intended to challenge, engage, and develop critical thinkers.
