Dr. Gilman W. Whiting of Vanderbilt University will present a workshop on the Scholar Identity Model™, a psycho-social model designed for assisting communities in developing methods to combat academic apathy. Dr. Whiting is a dynamic speaker and the founding chair of the Achievement Gap Institute for the George W. Peabody College of Education at Vanderbilt. Attendees will learn about research, theory and practice relative to underachieving, high-ability students, the Scholar Identity Model ™ and will gain a model for engaging students who appear to lack motivation. Dr. Whiting’s areas of research include: educational disparity; special and gifted education; race, sports, and American culture; welfare reform and fatherhood initiatives.
