Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at 6:30 PM - Monday, June 9, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Parents of Accelerated Learners, NYC [PALNYC] is pleased to present the PALNYC Workshop Series, Spring 2014 Season. Our signature workshops are back including Navigating NYC's G&T Options with an inside look at the programs that best accommodate advanced learners, and Supporting Your Child's Gifts & Talents All Summer Long, offering practical ways to prevent summer learning loss just in time for Summer break.
In addition to our signature workshops, PALNYC is proud to partner with local community organizations including The Courant Institute's Center for Mathematical Talent (CMT) at New York University for Beyond Flashcards: Exploring Mathematics with Children, a 4-Part Math Series for educators and parents. This FREE series of hands-on workshops meets monthly to introduce an approach to working with children that builds their skill at thinking mathematically. Aimed at supporting elementary school children in third through sixth grade, they'll explore simple arithmetic, commercial games, and readily available materials to encourage children to ask questions, develop strategies, and make discoveries the way a mathematician would. And stay tuned as details unfold for more events including The Speyer Legacy School's Speyer Speaker Series, designed to bring together educators, community leaders, and policy-makers. The Series intends to generate new perspectives on the critical role metacognition plays in preparing learners of extraordinary potential for future leadership.
