Sessions & Advocacy
Please join us for our
2012-13 Gifted Information Sessions & Advocacy (GISA)
The Future: Anticipating, Planning and Preparing!
In partnership with the Watson College of Education, Roland-Grise Middle School/New Hanover County School District (NHCS) is presenting our 3rd annual series of informational sessions for parents and caregivers. These sessions focus on the characteristics, needs, support strategies and enrichment opportunities for gifted learners. Dr. Edward Caropreso, coordinator of the AIG Program (gifted licensure) at Watson College, and Mrs. Elin Reuben will lead the sessions with the support of education professionals from across the region and state.
This year, four sessions will be offered, two in the fall and two in the spring. The first session, featuring Dr. Rick Courtright from Duke TIP, will be held in the Roland-Grise auditorium, September 24th, 6-7:30 pm. The following three sessions will be held in the Roland-Grise library from 6:00-7:30 pm.
These sessions are intended to help parents/caregivers deepen their understanding of their gifted child and giftedness as it pertains to many aspects of his or her life. Each session will reflect a different topic, as outlined below, but discussions often encompass an array of significant topics concerning the experiences of gifted learners and their families.
Each session will typically include a presentation with time at the end for dialogue. We encourage participation and will be glad to answer questions that relate to the session topics. Resources related to presentation topics will be available to peruse as an attachment and/or on the RGMS and Watson College webpages. Students are welcome to attend these sessions with their parent(s).
At the end of each session we ask that you complete an evaluation based on your experience. We appreciate your feedback and the opportunity to collaborate about gifted education as it pertains to our gifted learners and their experiences.
We look forward to you joining us for the 2012-13 Gifted Information Sessions & Advocacy J

“Children already come to us differentiated.
It just makes sense that we would differentiate our instruction in response to them.”
