From the BE Work to the Dream Work: Using Critical Thinking to Embolden Imagination
It is hard to suggest bold, innovative changes in K-12 gifted and advanced academic programming without feeling that transitioning from the way it’s always been to the way it ought to be is unrealistic. As administrators and leaders within a school system, it could feel outright reckless to pursue goals that would require dramatic shifts to the way our gifted and advanced academic programs have been designed. This session provides practical strategies to support school administrators seeking imaginative ways to not just PLYAY, the game, but to SLAY the game altogether. By providing an easy-to-implement framework to support leaders in shifting from the BE work of system management to the DREAM work of system dismantling through critical thinking. Because if this work doesn’t feel inherently unrealistic, it probably isn’t transformational enough.

Feedback on Feedback: Maximizing Productive Struggle with Strategic Unhelpfulness

Providing effective feedback is an essential skill for teachers seeking to challenge gifted learners. However, feedback given too freely can undermine productive struggle, an important part of the learning process. With the right balance of support and struggle, we help gifted learners embrace challenges, learn from mistakes, and reach their full potential. In this interactive session, participants will explore practical strategies to maximize productive struggle through strategic unhelpfulness as part of the feedback process. Participants will leave with a deeper meaning of how strategic unhelpfulness can strengthen gifted students’ critical thinking.

FREE Critical Thinking Game

“Informed Opinion” is a game that encourages kids to consider what information they need to know about a situation before they form an opinion about it. Players read real news headlines and take turns naming questions that would lead to a more informed understanding of the news story.
