GaTE | Foundation Series
The GaTE Foundation Series is the perfect introduction to GaTE Coordinators, teachers, SLT, SENCOs or RTLBs to working with gifted students. The series turns theory into practice to allow you to understand how to meet NAG 1(c) and how to practically support gifted students within the regular classroom.
Two sides of the same coin (28 September)
This day looks at how to “provide to identify” and how to use Gagné’s DMGT as a provision plan to implement environmental and intrapersonal catalysts. We will introduce you to practical differentiation strategies that can be used within the regular classroom for students to show their ability, no matter their domain or level of giftedness. We also work with you to develop pre-assessment strategies for your context, set a school acceleration process, help students work through being in the ‘learning pit’ and help to begin to help students with perfectionism or anxiety issues.
Taking the next steps (20 November)
Our final day will take you through a range of practical strategies for working with gifted students. These include using flexible grouping, creating an invitational learning environment and working with BYOD/LwDT within the regular classroom. We will also look at how we begin to work with 2E/Twice-exceptional students (those who are gifted plus have a learning issue of some kind) to help them meet their true potential within the regular classroom environment.
