In this edWebinar, presenters Susan Winebrenner, M.S., and Lisa M. Kiss, M.Ed., describe how to identify twice-exceptional (2e) students—students who are gifted and have another learning difference—and meet their academic and social-emotional needs in any classroom. These principles will also benefit other learners, since the methods described apply to all gifted/advanced students as well as those with learning difficulties, whether or not they are twice-exceptional.
The key is applying differentiated, specific, user-friendly strategies to totally engage students in successful learning experiences using field-tested differentiation methods, which can lead to achievement gains in academics and to more positive attitudes about school in general. This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, counselors, and social workers.
