How does a school district find students to service in a gifted program? This is the primary question each district must address when offering any gifted education services. This course will include an overview of the current theories of intelligences and the strategies for finding gifted learners from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Participants will investigate informal and formal assessment tools to determine which best fit the needs in their district. Ideas for developing an identification/assessment process sensitive to all populations will also be shared.
