Description:Some school districts offer programs for the gifted that usually depend on test scores to determine entry. Scores and approaches required for entry vary from district to district. In other districts, there are no special provisions for educating gifted students. As a result, many students are overlooked.. Classroom teachers are among the primary identifiers of more able students. They need to have the tools and strategies that accommodate bright students, whether they are gifted in one domain or many. Participants will be introduced to the different ways that giftedness may be defined. Howard Gardner’s model will be integrated into how we view gifted and talented students. Participants will be introduced to and will ultimately design differentiated lessons that meet the needs of students at varying levels of ability in their room.
Instructor: Dr. Starr Cline. Adjunct Associate Professor, Hofstra University. Dr. Cline has served as a school district gifted coordinator and is widely published in meeting the needs of diverse gifted populations in regular classrooms.
