Presenter(s):
Cathy Greene
Location:
Concord Elementary School (LLC), 1019 Concord Place, Darien IL 60561
Time:
8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Description:

The Gifted Education Seminar is a 45 hour course of study replacing the former Gifted Education Institute. The Illinois State Board of Education invites classroom teachers to deepen their understanding of how to teach and reach gifted and talented students. The goal of the training, "Educators will be able to create an environment to identify gifted and talented learners, address their diverse needs, and measure student growth in the classroom," will be accomplished through the exploration of topics including perspectives of gifted, knowing the gifted, curriculum models, and differentiation.

Benefit to Educators

• Receive two books:

o Achieving Excellence Educating the Gifted and Talented by Frances A. Karnes and

Kristen R. Stephens

o Differentiation: Simplified, Realistic, and Effective by Bertie Kingore

• 45 CPDUs or Aurora University Credit – 3 hours of Graduate Credit (educator responsible to pay for University Credit)

• Receive a certificate of completion for the Gifted Education Seminar

Educators must bring to Training:

This training involves the use of a USB drive, so attendees must bring a laptop with a USB drive.

THINGS TO KNOW! IMPORTANT!

1. The GES involves 45 hours of training. The face-to-face training comprises 36 hours of instruction (we will be together for 39 hours, 36 of which will be training). The remaining 9 hours involve participants working on their own time with GES media. Thus, participants need to know that they will need 9 additional hours of time during the GES course to engage with the USB independently, outside of class.

2. All participants, whether participating in the seminar for credit or for CPDUs will complete an E-journal and a project. These are due on or before July 7. That will give the instructor time to evaluate journals, projects and meet Aurora University grading deadlines.
