NAGC Administrator Toolbox
The National Association for Gifted Education (NAGC) invited me to participate in a nationwide task force to develop an Administrator Toolbox to guide school and district leaders in supporting gifted education programs and services in their schools. I participated in work groups which wrote the fact sheets and produced videos describing the importance of gifted education.
From the NAGC website:
“Because of the increasing number of requests for information for administrators about high-ability and high-potential learners, NAGC convened a task force of administrators to develop concise videos, fact sheets, and supporting documents — tools that district leaders can use as briefing materials and as the starting point to advocate for and implement services for gifted students.
The materials in the toolbox address:
- the rationale for gifted education services
- the critical elements of gifted education programming
- accountability for gifted student learning, and
- the connection between gifted education and other district and school initiatives such as 21st century skills and Response to Intervention”
