Unmasking the Possibilities

 

The  Dabrowski Dogs are preparing to accompany me to the Victorian Association for Gifted & Talented Children conference “Unmasking the Possibilities”  on Thursday 8 – Friday 9 September  http://www.vagtc.asn.au/
The theme of the conference will be overcoming the barriers such as poverty, isolation, cultural and language issues, 2E gifted with learning difficulties, health and social/emotional issues that can prevent gifted students from shining.

Emotional Dabrowski is often called The Drama Queen. She is enjoying trying on the theatrical masks which display the emotions!

Sensual and Psycho Motor would like to wear the Gifted Resources cheetah masks with the QR code for the web site included in the cheetah head spots but Sensual is not sure it will fit comfortably on him and Psycho Motor is bouncing so much the mask will not sit straight and keeps dislodging.


Intellectual Dabrowski is modelling the combination mask which demonstrates the theme of the conference. The mask has two layers. The gifts and talents displayed on the lower mask can only be glimpsed when the overlay mask which represents the difficulties is in place.


Imaginational Dabrowski found that his thinking was enlarged when he considered how the overlay mask could be removed to let the gifts and talents shine.
