Today's agenda stalled at the mental calisthenics (ask your child!) stage, when we wrote group "pass around stories." That is the beauty of this work. We can (mostly) take the time needed. We'll turn to the thesaurus soon!
This pacing opportunity afforded to us reminds me of a great article, What It Means to Teach Gifted Learners Well, by renowned GT pedagogue, Carol Ann Tomlinson. The entire article is good (and short) but here's the quote that sticks out to me today, delivered courtesy of Ian Byrd, and Byrdseed. (Note: He'll be at the MEGAT, Maine Educators of the Gifted and Talented New England Conference next week. There may still be room! It's not just for teachers. Follow the link for more information.)
