Strong programming for gifted students begins with determining who will be served in that program and determining how those students will be identified. A critical element in this process is to match the identification process with the programming that is offered. Participants will explore the research supported program models that operate in this country and around the world. They will explore the underpinnings of the program, review their current program and the type of professional development needed to support new programming. The NAGC 2010 Program standards will be the guiding document.
