Lannie Kanevsky: An Evening for Parents of Gifted Learners

We are pleased to invite you a session called “Good Learning for Highly Able Learners” presented by  Lannie Kanevsky on January 28 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

This event is open to NHS parents and other parents of gifted learners who are interested in attending. Please indicate your attendance by using the link at the end of this post.

Session Description:  Lannie will help us explore the learning processes of high ability learners.  How do they learn when they are deeply engaged and challenged?  How is their learning the same and different from that of other children their age?  What features of their learning can be adapted to respond to their strengths? Lannie will help attendees play with a chart that can help them match different types of learning experiences to their child’s strengths and explore a website loaded with free resources to help you and your child’s teachers support their extraordinary potentials.
