Register today at: Eventbrite

The P.A.L. monthly workshop series helps parents of accelerated learners understand important topics relevant to their child’s cognitive, social & emotional development. Experts and practitioners in the field of gifted and talented education and parent advocates will join our panels for a dialogue with you about educating and nurturing these unique learners. The workshop series was launched in Spring 2011.

Workshop #2: GIFTED & TALENTED EDUCATION IN NYC: A ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION ABOUT G&T PROGRAMMING (IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NEW YORK FAMILY MAGAZINE)

Is gifted and talented education really that different? With all the frenzy around G&T tests each year, and not enough seats to accommodate the number of students, what does it mean to be a gifted and talented program? Can a high-scoring gen ed public school help kids reach their highest potential? Do Firm Schools better serve this population with their smaller class size and course offerings? Is charter school or home schooling an option for an advanced learner? How do Hunter, citywide schools and districtwide G&T schools differ? How can G&T learners –regardless of program- connect with like-minded peers and take advantage of local learning and mentoring opportunities?

Join New York Family Magazine Editor Eric Messenger as he moderates a panel of principals and parents to explore answers to these questions and more about G&T Education in New York City. This session is ideally suited for parents interested in pursuing or are enrolled in a gifted and talented program in NYC.

Reps from Hunter, Anderson, TAG, NEST, BSI, STEM PS85, The Speyer Legacy School, The Lang School, Lower Lab, PS33, and more will be on-site for discussion and Q&A.

Moderator:
Eric Messinger, Editor of New York Family Magazine
