Course Description

This course is for teachers preparing for the Gifted In-Field certification endorsement.  It is one in a series of four courses required by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for adding the endorsement for Gifted In-Field to a Georgia teaching certificate.  The purpose of this course is to introduce candidates to the educational principles that offer appropriate foundations for the development of differentiated programming and curriculum for gifted learners and to familiarize them with current trends related to program design, implementation, and intervention.

  • How can the key learning realms (thinking skills, communication skills, and research skills) be synthesized to provide for the optimal development of gifted students across the various curriculum areas?
  • Why is it necessary to design multiple strategies for assessing learning outcomes and program effectiveness in gifted education?
  • What current educational issues, policies and practices influence curriculum development and program planning for gifted students?
