Description

For ​50 ​years, ​the ​Nueva ​School ​has ​led ​the ​field ​of ​gifted ​education ​as ​an ​independent ​school ​with ​a ​dual ​purpose: ​to ​serve ​gifted ​students ​and ​to ​share ​our ​resources, ​talents, ​knowledge, ​and ​innovation ​with ​the ​larger ​community. ​We ​are ​experts ​at ​meeting ​the ​specialized ​educational ​needs ​of ​gifted ​learners. ​We ​know ​giftedness ​is ​a ​concept ​that ​can ​be ​confusing ​and ​nuanced. ​

Join ​us ​at ​the ​Giftedness ​Institute ​to ​explore ​the ​complexities ​of ​the ​gifted ​learner ​and ​learn ​best ​practices ​for ​teaching ​and ​nurturing ​the ​gifted ​child.

Topics ​covered ​in ​the ​Institute ​include:
- ​What ​is ​giftedness ​and ​who ​are ​gifted ​students?
-The ​lived ​experience ​of ​gifted ​students
- ​Social-emotional ​needs ​of ​the ​gifted ​student
- ​Differentiating ​for ​gifted ​students: ​Excitabilities, ​intensities, ​asynchrony, ​perfectionism, ​and ​movement
- ​Scaffolding ​for ​twice-exceptional ​students ​in ​our ​classrooms
- ​Recognizing, ​supporting, ​and ​valuing ​gifted ​students ​of ​color
- ​Insights ​into ​assessment
- ​Understanding ​the ​unique ​needs ​of ​gifted ​LGBTQ+ ​students
