Excelling with the Common Core – MAGC Conference

September 16, 2014

MAGCConferenceRochester SAGE would like to invite educators and parents in the Rochester Community Schools to the Michigan Association for Gifted Children’s Annual Conference.

The conference is on October 11 at MSU’s Eli Broad School of Business.

This year’s theme is Excelling with the Common Core.  Participants will take away strategies for identifying, raising, and educating gifted kids, as well as tips and techniques that ensure the Common Core State Standards are presented at the high levels of thinking and deep, rigorous levels of content required for ALL students, including the gifted.

Some great speakers are scheduled, including Dr. Art Costa, founder of the Art Costa Centre for Thinking and author of Habits of Mind, and gifted education expert Dr. Ellen Fiedler.  Come enjoy helpful talks on Differentiation in the Classroom, Parenting Gifted Children, and Challenges of Teaching Gifted Children!

SCECHs are available!

I was delighted to see several educators and parents from the RCS community there last year and hope to see even more this year!

More information is available at or

Thank you for reading Rochester SAGE.  Together we can make a difference for gifted children!
