We are very fortunate to have Ian Byrd leading us in a day of learning where we will exploring the topic of:

Delighting Gifted Students With Complexity

To differentiate for our gifted students, we cannot just give more work, and we have to think beyond “harder” work. To motivate our advanced students, we have to balance the complexity of a task with their skill. We will look at how complexity (in the right dose) delights and motivates, and we’ll explore examples of complex tasks and simple ways to spice lessons up with complexity.
