Developing Learning Partnerships in the Gifted Classroom (3-Hour)


Presenter: Dr. Joyce Juntune, Texas A&M University
Core Area: Creativity & Instruction
Grade Level: Elementary & Secondary
Hours: 3

When do gifted students, and all students, learn and flourish? They say a student doesn’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. As a teacher, the way to show this is by building relationships. When you foster learning relationships in your classroom, every student will begin to flourish. There are specific skills and strategies that help promote successful learning partnerships.

Dr. Joyce Juntune not only teaches you those strategies, she helps you create a roadmap for your classroom. Once the skills are in place you can trust students more to do something on their own initiative!
