Presenter: Dr. Laurie Croft, Clinical Professor of Gifted Education, Associate Director for Professional Development, Belin-Blank Center for Gifted Education 

The National Association for Gifted Children has a set of knowledge and skill standards for ALL teachers, not just those who choose to work with advanced learners in specialized programs. What is different about gifted students; why should all teachers recognize “the learning differences, developmental milestones, and cognitive/affective characteristics of gifted and talented students, including those from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and identify their related academic and social-emotional needs” (NAGC, 2014)?  Learn more about characteristics and abilities of gifted students.
