Teacher's Corner
Summer Work …

from Jeff Danielian, NAGC Teacher Specialist

It is safe to say that by the time you read this, summer break is or will be, on the horizon. Many educators choose to use part of the summer to attend a gifted education conference; others seek to revise and/or construct new and existing curriculum. Students, too, are busy at recreational day and overnight camps or on vacations close to or far from home, where they engage in a variety of enriching activities. I’d like to offer suggestions for both the teacher and the student on ways to educationally enhance the summer months.

For the Teacher

Whether you have experienced the excitement of a summer conference, and like me, cannot wait for the minute you depart, or perhaps you’ve never considered attending. If that is the case, I urge you to give it a shot. Attending a conference in the summer is quite different than during the year. There is a chance to relax, take information in at a leisurely pace, and return home refreshed and ready to use all that is learned. The NAGC Annual Convention is coming in November, but you may want to explore some of these summer conferences listed below. There is sure to be one close to you! more
