Description

About the workshop

Training educators to meet the academic and affective needs of twice exceptional students is a critical need in Iowa. ITAG’s spring workshop for gifted and special needs educators and administrators will assist district teams in developing plans to address these challenges and to learn instructional approaches that emphasize rigor. Teachers and all educational personnel can benefit from professional development on the characteristics and performance of twice exceptional students, which will increase the probability that these students will be identified and appropriately served with both gifted and special education services.

Presenters include Dr. Megan Foley-Nicpon, University of Iowa and Rebecca Lopez and Julie MacKissock from Cherry Creek School District, Greenwood Village, Colorado. Breakout sessions will feature teams from Iowa districts on how they serve 2e students, social-emotional needs of 2e students, assistive technology, and more.

Who should attend?

We encourage districts to send teams of gifted, regular, and special educators and administrators. Each team attending will leave with a district plan draft for serving twice exceptional students as well as strategies designed to provide appropriate classroom instruction.
