Research suggests that children possess potential for many kinds of talents (thinking abilities) which are important to success in the classroom as well as in the world of work.  In addition to the Academic, these Talents include:  Productive Thinking, Communication, Forecasting, Decision Making and Planning.   When students apply the five critical and creative talents to learn academic content, the processes require students to go beyond memorization and think about factual information in more challenging ways.  This one day workshop will introduce you to the Talents Unlimited approach.  It will include an overview of the 6 talents and it demonstrates the correlation between Talents and CCRS, STEM and Aspire.  Learn to identify and nurture the multiple thought process talents of ALL students.  This approach does not take the place of learning academic skills but rather enhances the learning process.  Come and learn about Talents Unlimited.
