G/T Instructional Seminars
Instructional seminars are designed to extend student interests beyond general exploratory experiences. G/T Resource Teachers provide advanced-level instruction and schedule these opportunities for interested students. Skill development might include written, oral, and visual communication skills, critical and creative thinking skills, research skills, technology skills, and skills in visual and performing arts. Seminar topics may include consultation with professionals involved in the field of study who provide students with additional instruction and guidance as they engage in product development. Teachers, students, or parents may nominate students to participate in an instructional seminar.
