Session: 
Self-Regulation: Essential tools for 21st Century Gifted Learners 

As gifted children move through school, motivation and engaging them in learning becomes more complex and complicated. In many cases this perceived lack of motivation and/or engagement may be due to the students’ deficit in the academic strategies of self-regulation to learn independently. It is essential that teachers assist students in developing the skills of self-regulation, including planning, organizing, and meta-cognition. This session will demonstrate how to infuse academic self-regulation strategies into everyday lessons and activities.
