"Critical Thinking & Creativity" Conference, hosted by the Charles Townes Center (CTC) at Sterling School - Teaching the gifted child is not always easy. Effective instruction requires time, creativity, and intentional planning. To ensure that your gifted learners receive the high quality instruction they deserve, the CTC is proud to host “Critical Thinking & Creativity” Conference on Thursday, March 19, 2020, from 8:30 AM - 4 PM, at 99 John McCarroll Way, Greenville 29607. View our conference flyer. This year’s conference will proudly feature educator and author, Lisa Van Gemert (“The Gifted Guru”), as this year’s keynote. The $75 registration fee includes lunch. Register and send payment by check or register and pay online. This professional learning opportunity will provide classroom practitioners and curriculum leaders with highly effective strategies to reach the gifted learner. This conference is open to current educators and pre-service teachers who are looking for effective ways to challenge students and enrich curriculum. Conference participants will visit classrooms where highly gifted students engage in hands-on, differentiated instruction led by gifted-endorsed teachers. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to interact with students and teachers in the CTC program, bringing home valuable resources and information to share with their own students. Workshop sessions will offer research-based, useful and authentic instructional strategies from teachers who have successfully implemented these approaches with gifted students.
