What Do You Know? We are going to start by gathering some information about what you already know about this topic. We will be using a tool called “Poll Everywhere”. (www.polleverywhere.com)www.polleverywhere.com You can participate by texting your answer from your cell phone, or by entering your answers into a website from your laptop.

Presenter Text Polling Notes Explain what’s going on – “Now I’m going to ask for your opinion. You’ll use your phones to respond just like on American Idol. So please take out your cell phones, but remember to leave them on silent.” – “You’ll participate by sending a text message. If you don’t know how to do that, just ask your kids! Or have your neighbor help you figure it out.” Address their concerns – “This is a just standard rate text message, so it may be free for you, or up to twenty cents on some carriers if you do not have a text messaging plan.” – “The service we are using is serious about privacy. We cannot see your phone numbers, and you’ll never receive follow-up text messages outside this presentation. There’s only one thing worse than email spam – and that’s text message spam because you have to pay to receive it!” Use a demo or practice poll – For example, a Free Text Poll like “Let’s Practice: Text in your first name!” Always test your polls in your presentation before your event using the computer that will be projecting your presentation, especially if that computer is not the one you’re currently using.

Teaching Gifted Learners Well Good curriculum and instruction begins with good curriculum and instruction. Good teaching is paced in response to students’ individual needs. Good teaching happens at a higher “degree of difficulty” than for many students their age. Good teaching requires an understanding of “supported risk”. by Carol Ann Tomlinson, Ed.D, The University of Virginia; http://www.nagc.org/index.aspx?id=659; from the May 1997 issue of Instructional Leader.http://www.nagc.org/index.aspx?id=659
