Teachers play an important role in all aspects of gifted education, from identifying potential talent, to challenging learning opportunities, to helping students navigate social-emotional growth. Yet the research on the impact of teacher beliefs and the impact on gifted learners is sparse.
If the icons of depth and complexity don’t feel as shiny as they once did, this session recording from giftED20 is for you. Rediscover the power of the icons through targeted activities that take the “depth and complexity” in depth and complexity seriously.
Participants will explore how the Icons of Depth and Complexity will enable their students to grasp math concepts at a deeper level and consider math situations in new ways in this video recorded at giftED20.
Developing meaningful, challenging questions is a difficult task. In this session, participants will move from creating a one-icon question to composing one with four or more icons embedded, guiding students to deep, abstract thought.
Connect overarching mathematical concepts with numerous Depth & Complexity Iconic Prompts to understand natural connections between the Framework and mathematics – leading to a better understanding of ways to differentiate instruction within math courses.
Every journey begins with a first step. In order to take that step, a destination is determined. Deciding the journey’s destination relies on prior travel and a desire for a new direction to explore.
