Creating Classroom Environments to Support Social and Emotional Development

Educators want to design learning environments in which individual differences are honored, students are encouraged to ask and answer complex questions, and young people feel valued. This session presents a variety of activities to assist teachers in creating classrooms where gifted students feel welcome and respected. Teachers learn how to facilitate non-threatening and enjoyable activities to establish a climate of support.
