IAGC-Gifted Education Seminar (GES)

This training was developed specifically for classroom teachers who do not have background in how to serve gifted students. This interactive, comprehensive, multi-module course, developed in partnership with the Illinois State Board of Education, helps teachers, administrators, gifted coordinators, and all who serve gifted children to deepen their understanding of how to teach and reach gifted and talented students. Topics included are theories and perspectives on giftedness, knowing the “whole child,” curriculum models, differentiation, and social-emotional needs. Start date is January 11, 2019 and completes on April 19, 2019.

Course consists of 45 hours of independent study (or 3 hours college credit from Lindenwood University) that must be completed by April 19, 2019.

Trainers have experience as teachers and/or administrators in gifted programs in Illinois. Presenters are all GES-certified trainers and have taught the GES prior to this class.
