Monthly Webinar Series
With the requirements put on all of us to teach to standards, it can be hard to incorporate opportunities for creative thinking. April Drake and Karen Fradley will share a resource that any teacher can use in any setting to find ways to weave creativity into their day.
You will discover ways to incorporate creativity into daily station rotations, transitions, or whole group work, as well as information on projects and competitions.

Empower gifted learners to take charge of their education.
Gifted learners are full of potential, but sometimes they’re also frustrated, bored, and even disruptive in class. Many bright students struggle because they have never been taught how to ask for what they really need to improve their school experience. This research-based guide shows educators how to teach self-advocacy skills to gifted students in four essential steps. Gifted students will:
- Understand their rights and responsibilities
- Develop their learner profiles
- Investigate available options and opportunities
- Connect with advocates
These simple yet comprehensive strategies are brought to life in triumphant true student stories. Also included are complete instructions for conducting a day-long self-advocacy workshop with gifted students. Digital content includes a workshop facilitator’s guide, a PDF presentation for use in workshops, pre- and post-workshop student surveys, and customizable forms.
