Fostering Leadership in High Ability Students by Empowering their Metacognition Skills
Start Date: Wed, Oct 09, 2019 9:00 am - 3:00 pm Workshop #: 191009W-1
Presenter(s): Liz Hutchins & Kris R.

Room 9 - Professional Development Alliance, 2705 McDonough St., Joliet, IL 60436 (View Map)
Date Summary:   1 Session on 10/9/2019.  


Participants will discuss myths and characteristics of high ability students, and their unique brain development. Participants will be exposed to strategies that will correctly identify higher level students and build a set of resources for working with their learning needs. This class is designed to emphasize the importance of metacognitive tools that improve study habits, goal setting and problem solving in high ability students. Teaching students about metacognition empowers students to better understand how they think, study and learn. This knowledge builds stronger performance in the classroom and confidence to handle complexities of problem solving encountered in real life situations. Emphasis on strategies for engaging creative and critical thinking, brain growth understanding, and leadership skills for high ability students will be highlighted. These strategies will be designed to be embedded into grade level curriculums.

This workshop has been created in response to the focus of the Accelerated Placement Act and the ESSA standards for social and emotional learning needs of high ability students.  By taking this course teachers will embed Illinois Social and Emotional Learning Standards and Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requirements to effectively support high ability students.
