Did you know you can probably trace your biggest challenges in gifted education back to social and political mistakes? For example, the No Child Left Behind Act was meant to increase support for at-risk and struggling students, but it resulted in a lack of focus and resources for G/T students. Though society and politics may be beyond your help, your gifted students are not! When you understand the roots of the problem, you can become an advocate for better G/T education.
In this 1-hour course, you will learn:
- How high-stakes testing affects G/T students
- The impact of the economy on gifted education
- Pervasive myths about gifted students
- How you can become an advocate
