SENGinar: “Since there’s no school, I’m not doing the work”: Academic Motivation Strategies for Gifted Learners
Time & Location
May 26, 2020, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
About The Event
Many students, whether or not they admit it openly, are “schoolsick” - they miss the social structures, teacher relationships, and routines of going to school each day. As a result, many students have been reluctant to embrace online learning, where new routines, new platforms, and new methods of assessment are being used.
This webinar will emphasize hands-on activities and strategies that embrace a gifted student’s complexity with a “whole child” approach.
