If you have enjoyed listening to Ted Braude at the last coffee talk, catch him again at The Michigan Association for Gifted Children (MAGC) Conference, “Gifted Education: Kick it Up a Notch.” The conference in October was so successful, we were asked to hold it again at Emerson School in Ann Arbor on Saturday, December 7th.
There will be seminars for parents, teachers, and school administrators, including presentations by experts on advanced learners and addressing the academic and social needs of these unique students (perfectionism by Roeper’s Lisa Bottesi, gifted curriculum, gifted boys). Schedule details, speakers’ topics and bios can be found at our conference website, www.migiftedchild.org/conference. Register by December 3, 2013.
There will be a session where teachers and parents will be split to ask questions and get feedback specific to their situation.
Registration is $45 for MAGC Members and $55 for non-members. Lunch is provided in the registration fee, and seminars can apply to continuing education credits for educators (SCECH). Visit www.migiftedchild.org/register to register for the conference and discover more information and resource links to support gifted children. You may view the MAGC conference flyer here.
MAGC has been the prime organizational resource for supporting educators and families of high ability/gifted children and youth in Michigan for more than 30 years.
