Rethinking Structure in the Gifted Classroom with Guest, David Sebek

David Sebek


David Sebek, middle school ELA teacher of the Fort Bend ISD, was our guest this week to discuss ‘Rethinking Structure in the Gifted Classroom’. He was TAGT’s 2011 Teacher of the Year. This proved to be a popular topic with many new participants and attendees from 25 states and 5 countries. A full transcript may be found here.

David started with the premise ~ Are we a teaching school or learning school? (Attributed to @ThatIanGilbert ). He continued by saying, “We should shift our paradigms to Future Proofing the Students. A basic premise we use is Reverse the Role of the Learner: Dependent, Passive Consumer to an Independent, Active Producer. ”
