IAGC-Gifted Education Seminar (GES)

This training was developed specifically for classroom teachers who do not have background in how to serve gifted students. Because the copyright ends December 2020, this is the final year IAGC will offer GES.  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 22, 2020 and the course completes on May 6, 2020.

To complete this course, you must purchase two books.  There are Achieving Excellence: Educating the Gifted and Talented by Frances A. Karnes and Kristen R. Stephens and Differentiation:  Simplified, Realistic, and Effective by Bertie Kingore.  These books are available either new or used online.

Course consists of 45 hours of independent study and you will receive 45 PDHs.  If you want to take GES for professional development hours, please register for "2020 GES - with 45 PDH."

GRADUATE CREDIT HOURS: If you want to take GES for 3 hours of college credit given Lindenwood University, please register for "2020 GES - with 3 grad. credit hours."  If you have questions email director@iagcgifted.org.

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.
