This course provides educators to demonstrate development and delivery of assessment-based strategies within gifted education (differentiated instruction, iconic teaching, depth and complexity, tiering, 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. Although field assignments will differ between candidates, all are expected to document experiences, including organized reflections and evidence of knowledge, skills and abilities.
Topics are designed to provide more detailed information and/or hands-on skills in specific areas. As such, the objectives of the Special Topics course are to provide participants with additional knowledge and skills to effectively support GATE students.
