Description

About the workshop

Gifted students exist everywhere, in all populations. Do you and your colleagues know how to identify and serve gifted and talented from traditionally underrepresented populations? Join ITAG on April 17, 2019, as we present Tamra Stambaugh, Ph.D., for hands-on professional development on identifying and providing curriculum for low-income and potentially gifted learners. Afternoon breakout sessions with Dr. Stambaugh and experts from Iowa will focus on gifted students who have a disability and those who are from rural and minority populations.
