Gifted Training

  • Curriculum Development/Gifted

    Curriculum Development for the Gifted is one of five courses needed to complete the gifted endorsement. Participants will learn how to plan, develop, implement, and evaluate curriculum and instruction for gifted learners. Participants will learn how to write an interdisciplinary unit incorporating technology, differentiation, alternative assessments and products. We recommend the other four courses as prerequisite for Curriculum so strategies and understanding of gifted learners will be evident in the final unit.

This course incorporates many of the issues central to multicultural education, special education, and at the same time it will allow participants to confront difficult questions of quality, educational excellence, prejudice, stereotyping, and discriminatory practices on the national, state, and local levels of education.
