HARNESSING HIGH POTENTIAL: BE AWARE, LEARN TO CARE, DARE TO SHARE (Unlimited attendance)
Are you frustrated by your students' untapped potential? Are you curious as to why some students demonstrate great promise but don't always deliver? The social and emotional needs of high potential learners may manifest as underperformance, fear of failure, perfectionism, emotional intensity, anxiety, and more. In our context here in the GEC, this is augmented by social and cultural factors. This workshop draws on research into gifted and talented education while imparting practical strategies, exploring mindsets and mindfulness, and promoting discussion around the needs of our students. Sometimes described as gifted or talented, "High potential learners are not perfect and don't exist so that we can focus on the 'less able' or 'lower ability' groups. High potential students need guidance and support, too." "We don't expect Olympic athletes to "get there" on their own. Let's not expect our Olympic learners to "get there" on their own, either." This workshop is for any educator who wants to be more aware of these issues, learn to care for students' social and emotional needs, and dares to share their ideas and experiences in harnessing the high potential of our students.

THINK BREAK (10 - 30 PAX)
Think Break is a workshop based upon the concepts of active learning.  We will offer some quick, activity based games to both boost adrenalin (proven to help memory retention) and enhance engagement. You will not only be involved in the games yourselves, but be provided some suggestions on how these games might be used to also deliver some classroom instruction and to help retention of student memory.
