Practicum in Gifted and Talented Education is a course that provides educators an opportunity to demonstrate competencies in the development and delivery of assessment-based strategies within gifted education (differentiated instruction, iconic teaching, depth and complexity, tiered assignments, and technology use, for example), connecting them together in a cohesive manner. Candidates will collaborate with the course instructor to determine an appropriate signature project based on academic and professional interests and to establish meaningful benchmarks and artifacts. This may take the form of an action research project on a topic of professional interest or a curated portfolio of work. The signature project includes organized reflections of practice and artifacts offering evidence of knowledge, skills and abilities that can be used by peers. Prerequisites: Socioemotional Characteristics of the Gifted and Talented; Brain-Compatible Learning I; and Instructional Strategies (LAUSD)
