Join us for the P.A.L. Workshop Series, 2012-2013 season, beginning this month as parents, experts and educators together explore gifted & talented education and talent development. We look at the issues, the solutions and the resources available locally. Plus, we’re pleased to announce our first NYC G&T Conference in the Spring. We’ll have the top authorities on G&T education, local NYC-based experts and an exhibit area of the city’s best resources and programming for these unique learners.
We’re kicking the season off with our signature workshop on Wednesday, September 19, The NYC Gifted & Talented Process: An Insiders Guide to Admissions & Testing for Public & Private School.
If you’ve graduated beyond kindergarten entry and are looking to better understand the big picture of G&T education, don’t miss our roundtable discussion, What’s Happening to Gifted & Talented Education in NYC? in partnership with New York Family Magazine.
If middle school is your focus, we’re finally moving beyond elementary with a panel on Critical Issues for The NYC Middle Schooler.
For parents who are the first respondents when their child needs homework help, we’re launching our Homework Helper: Mini Session on Math with specialists who will show you effective strategies, games, apps and more that you can use with your child to make math more meaningful.
And Summer Slide Prevention: Enriching Experiences and Engaging Summertime Activities to Prevent Summer Learning Loss along with our P.A.L. G&T Speedsourcing event are also back in time for summer.
If you plan to attend three or more events, be sure to purchase a P.A.L. Gifted Season Ticket and enjoy all 5 P.A.L. events for $49, a savings of $26 off the regular price ($75). This season ticket also includes reserved seating, a copy of the P.A.L. G&T Resource list, the P.A.L. monthly e-newsletter, first access to tickets for the Spring NYC G&T Conference and you’ll have the opportunity to win extra perks like the Jade’s ToyBox ‘Limited Edition Brainiac Box’ for your child, a $99 value.
We hope you can make it!
