Get the Support You Need
The Back to School/Back to Gifted 2012 WOW Series has been well-received and attended by new and returning teachers as well as parents. One attendee stated: "It was such a useful reminder of the basics and implementation strategies. So often we are inundated with so many 'fix-it' strategies, that we can get lost in the thicket." The beginning of school is a great time to take advantage of the support and guidance you can receive from leaders in the field. So clear your desks and make room for the two final webinars in the series that will provide you with supplemental learning and immediate ideas for implementation.
Here are two other WOW sessions you'll find in the NAGC Live Learning Center.
