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 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!
Tuesday, May 19th, was a wonderful presentation with Vanessa Ewing about Make a Great Day, Every Day: Strategies for Supporting our Gifted Children and Supporting Ourselves. If you missed this “conversation” you can find the link on our Resource page under Conversations with CAGT or on our FaceBook page.
Next Tuesday, May 26th CWC (aka Conversations with CAGT) will be featuring Bob Seney’s session on Reading and the Pandemic. Do your kids or students love to read? Are they devouring books during this time of having to stay at home? If you are a parent or teacher (even a student), you will love our next “Conversation with CAGT”! It has been Bob’s experience that gifted readers often gravitate to series and at the same time, they decry that they have to wait for the next book in the series! With more time available for reading, Bob will suggest some of his favorite series for readers of young adult literature for their summer enjoyment. Please join us next Tuesday, FBLive at 5:00!
*If you tried to view our Conversations with CAGT, “Growing up Gifted and Generation Z: Safe Spaces” with Mark Hess please accept our apologies as we had to cancel due to technical difficulties with Zoom and Facebook. Mark will be sharing this presentation on June 16th at 5:00 PM so mark your calendar.
COVID-19 Update / Resources
During this difficult time of CDC and statewide precautions due to Covid-19 CAGT wants you to know that we are continuing our work advocating for the needs of our gifted children. Normal operations are still in place except for any in person activities. Plans for our fall conference have begun and we are following all legislative issues that may impact our GT students. We remain committed to supporting our community of gifted learners through this challenging time and to help families who must remain home throughout the rest of the school year. Below are some links from our national organization and other expert sources on how to support your gifted children’s needs at home.
