Session 1: 8-9:30am PT / 11-12:30pm ET
Kasi Peters and Carol Malueg present: Harnessing 2e Super Powers – A Preview of DIY Education
In managing multiple exceptionalities, it is all about focusing on the Superpowers our 2e kids possess. Creativity, innovation, persistence (in areas of interest), empathy, and courage are just a few superpowers we want to recognize and nurture. 2e kids are some of the most complex thinkers on the planet, with asynchrony squared, to quote Lee Singer. Join us as we explore the marvelous world of 2e Superpowers in this bonus free viewing of Framework 7 in GHF’s DIY Education program, complete with its trove of tools and resources, and followed by live conversation with Kasi & Carol.
Kasi Peters is a long-time supporter of gifted families and is an advocate for child-led, autonomous education. This passion led her to co-found Westside of Los Angeles Gifted – a community of gifted families who gather in person and online to share resources and create supportive and fun opportunities for families. She has two gifted children and has been homeschooling for 10 years. Kasi leads parent support groups and consults for families looking for alternatives to traditional brick-and-mortar schools through her business Square Pegs. She has a certificate in Gifted and Talented Education and has served on the board of directors for several gifted non-profit organizations, including Profoundly Gifted Retreat and GHF. Kasi is co-creator of DIY Education for GHF members, a comprehensive program supporting families ranging from homeschool-curious to newbie to veteran homeschoolers. She also serves on the advisory panel for Gro-Gifted and is a graduate student at Bridges Graduate School of Cognitive Diversity. In addition to her volunteer service to gifted organizations, Kasi is a board-certified pediatric music therapist.
Carol Malueg, M.A. GCT2e, is the mother of 2 gifted young adults, works in the field of gifted education and support, and volunteers with several state and national organizations that support gifted kids and their families. Carol is a Master Facilitator and Trainer for Supporting the Emotional Needs of the Gifted (SENG) and sits on the Board of Directors for the Gifted Homeschoolers Forum (GHF) and the Minnesota Council for the Gifted and Talented (MCGT). She has worked on three Javits Grant research projects focused on improving the identification of and services for gifted at-risk students. Her new venture, Gifted Roads LLC, addresses the gifted and 2e experience across the lifespan.
Session 2: 9:45-11:15am PT / 12:45-2:15pm ET
Marnina Kammersell & Sarah McLuckie present: Charting Your Own Path – Homeschooling 2e
Homeschooling 2e children can feel like a lonely road. Experienced home educators and scholars, Marni and Sarah, empathize and share their personal experiences in homeschooling 2e children. From the purview of being a bit further down that path that seems to grow ild anew, no matter how beaten it may be! They’re eager to answer some of the big questions parents have when considering homeschooling 2e kids and will share their successes and what hasn’t worked. Get strategies for a collaboration-focused model, including: focusing on their passions and interests; fostering intrinsic motivation; and scaffolding challenge areas. They’ll also talk about how homeschooling parents can nourish and sustain themselves.
Marni Kammersell is a doctoral student at the Bridges Graduate School of Cognitive Diversity in Education. However, her greatest teachers are her three twice-exceptional children. Together, they’ve been living a self-directed learning lifestyle since 2009. As a homeschooling and neurodiversity parent coach, Marni loves sharing the latest research from the field of interpersonal neurobiology. She enjoys helping families transition from traditional educational models into homeschooling in a way that works for their unique learners. You can find her at www.nuturingneurodiversity.com.
Sarah McLuckie earned her BA and MA degrees in English Literature from Georgia College & State University. She has been teaching college English courses for the past decade.
