OAGCT is excited to welcome Jennifer Jolly as our Keynote Speaker at this year’s OAGCT conference! The conference will be held Tuesday, February 11th, 2014, at OSU-Stillwater.
Jennifer L. Jolly received her Ph.D. in educational psychology with a
concentrate in gifted education from Baylor University. Currently she is an
associate professor in elementary and gifted education. Her research interests
include the history of gifted education and parents of gifted learners. Jolly is
the vice-president of The Association of the Gifted (CEC-TAG) and also served as
editor-in-chief of NAGC’s Parenting for High Potential. She is on the editorial
advisory board for Gifted Child Today and the Journal for the Education of the
Gifted. She received the Michael Pyryt Collaboration Award from AERA/Research on Creativity, Giftedness, and Talent SIG (with Dr. Alex Garn & Dr. Michael
Matthews) in 2012, the 2011 Louisiana Council for Exceptional Children Higher
Education Professional of the Year, and the 2010 American MENSA Research Award.
Jolly established a summer camp for gifted learners in partnership with the
Louisiana State Museum, which hosts local gifted students each June. Before her
tenure at LSU, she taught in both gifted and regular education classrooms as a
public school teacher.
Jolly will be presenting at breakout sessions as well the keynote, but they will be focused on her book, Using the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts With Gifted and Advanced Learners. Since space is limited, Jolly is asking those who have read the book have preference to attend those breakout sessions. The book can be purchased at the following website: https://www.nagc.org/NAGC2/NGCShopper/ProductDetails.aspx?productID=NGC42157&CurrIndex=8.
