Gifted learners often think about and organize their knowledge in ways that are different than their typically developing peers. Demonstrating and discussing their understanding can be a challenge if students aren't taught how to think about their thinking. In this session, participants will be introduced to an instructional tool called a Foldable. Foldables are three-dimensional graphic organizers that can be used to present concepts in concrete and organized ways. Once students are taught the basics of Foldables they can apply the tools independently allowing them to organize their own knowledge and understanding becoming active participants in the processes of learning and practice. 

Learner Outcomes

Participants will be able to:
1. Create different formats of Foldables.
2. Implement the use of Foldables in their own classrooms.
2. Discuss the classroom applications for Foldables, specifically with gifted learners.
