Goal

We would like to raise enough money to attend Confratute which is a Gifted Education Professional Development Opportunity put on during the summer at UConn.  

 

What will be done with my students

At Confratute, we get an opportunity to attend classes with the leaders in Gifted Education. After attending last year, we changed many things in our classroom to benefit students. Below is a list of just a few of our changes. We know that by attending again, we will find even more things to improve on!
-New divergent thinking activities
-Office Hours (after school) for students having a rough time
-Protocols/Strategies for underachieving students
-Special focus on gifted girls and their needs
-After-school enrichment opportunities (such as Lego Club, Girls Empowerment Club, Technology Club, and Mindfulness Club)
-Project Ambassadors (students chosen in each class to provide peer-feedback on projects)
-New books to help parents

 

 

Benefits to my students

We would like to attend again because neither of us have ever attended such worthwhile professional development. Gifted Education as a field is fairly young. The leading researchers and Doctors in the field are still alive and participate in this program. We know that by attending again we will be able to bring back new material, strategies, and ideas to improve our gifted program at our school. Gifted Children have unique needs and we want to continue in our quest to best meet those needs.  

 

Describe the Students

We have about 240 gifted middle school students.
