Our presentation Thinking Like a Lawyer: Tools for Engaging Critical Thinking Instruction was very well received at the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented Conference. Our attendees learned how to can close the critical thinking gap by translating the most engaging and rigorous aspects of legal education to the classroom and providing tangible instructional strategies to teach critical thinking to all students, especially the gifted and talented. Our founder | CEO ,Colin Seale, and Amanda Sloan, Coral Academy of Science Las Vegas lead this session.
Furthermore, we’re elated that it’s going to be featured on Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented On Demand’s library to help gifted & talented educators across the State of Texas earn professional development credits. The biggest takeaway was that educators recognized the immediate value of implementing the concrete strategies the thinkLaw program uses in our award-winning curriculum in their daily classroom environments for all students, not just the gifted and talented ones.

The Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented connects and empowers educators and parents to meet the unique needs of gifted and talented individuals through awareness, advocacy and action. The Leadership Conference is a two-day annual event for administrators, coordinators and specialists, focusing on best practices and promising programs. The conference is attended by approximately 300 leaders in gifted education. To learn more about the conference, click here.
