CAGT is excited to announce our new
FaceBook Live – Conversations with CAGT
Each Tuesday at 5:00 pm MDT, we will live stream a 20 – 30 minute presentation, followed by a Q&A with a local or national expert on a topic current and relevant to our GT community. Please join us for these informational conversations!
Our Conversations with CAGT Tuesday, October 27th was Supporting the Affective and Academic Needs of Learners Using the Autonomous Learning Model presented by Dr. Blanche Kapushion. She shared the challenges of meeting the needs of gifted learners especially since the intensities and over excitabilities of gifted learners is increased at this time of uncertainty, vast challenges and rapid change. As so many of our CWC guests have emphasized, relationship building is critical in supporting affective needs and keeping a pulse on the mental health and wellness of our gifted learners. Dr. Kapushion discussed the ALM framework and shared activities to nourish and support both the affective and academic realms for continuous healthy development, no matter the level or current challenges we are all attempting to navigate. If you missed this presentation or any of our “conversations” you can find them on our Resource page, CAGT’s FaceBook page or on our YouTube channel. Check them out!
This next Tuesday, November 3rd we will not be having a CWC so that you have time to vote, or if you have already, that you can follow the election results. Our next CWC (aka Conversations with CAGT) will be on November 10th when our guest will be Dr. Karen Rogers. Please make your voices heard and get out there to vote.
Join us Tuesday, November 10th for our next FB Live at 5:00!
