Gifted Education Online Article Study

Description: This 15 hour course serves the purpose of providing teachers of regular education courses with professional development in gifted education as described in the Operating Standards for Identifying and Serving Students Who are Gifted (July, 2017) .

Teaching and learning are intricately linked to social and behavioral factors of human development. Psychological science can also provide key insights on effective instruction and classroom environments that promote learning and inform the practice of serving gifted students. This online article study will present some gifted education practices and strategies from the Top 20 Principles from Psychology for PreK-12 Creative, Talented, and Gifted Students’ Teaching and Learning.

Over the length of the course, participants will be presented with various articles to read. Using that information, an analysis of their own practice will be made and written submissions, as well as response to peers, in the online classroom will be required. A certificate of completion for 15 contact hours will be provided at the end of the course to those who meet the participation requirements.
