Virtual Gifted Consortium Meetings

Designed for Gifted Intervention Specialists
 ESCLC Gifted Consortium is hosting the Winter Online Gifted Book Study via Google Classroom, January 11 - April 2, 2021. Thinking Like a Lawyer, written by Colin Seale, prepares teachers to discover ways in which to provide students with the opportunity to adopt the skills, habits, and mindsets of lawyers. With these skills, students will be able to tackle 21st century problems. Individual chapters address underachievement, the value of nuance, evidence-based reasoning, social-emotional learning, and equitable education.
Contact hours: 15
Cost: Free for *Gifted Consortium Members/$50 non-members. Participants must provide their own book or contact their district administrator for available resources.
