It’s About More than a “5”: The GT Scholar & AP


Research shows that gifted students think differently, and often more deeply, about their world. This workshop looks at ways to engage gifted students in your AP courses to help them make meaningful connections within and across class content. Strategies such as Sandra Kaplan’s Depth and Complexity and Content Imperatives can add rigor to Socratic seminars and other class discussions. Learn how to combine AP standards with GT instructional strategies to foster creativity, inquiry, and discovery in the AP classroom. Discuss with a number of GT AP high school scholars about their ideal learning environment. Additionally, discover more about the College Board’s new AP Capstone program and how this innovative program design specifically meets the needs of gifted individuals.
