What is ‘Removing the Mask: Identifying and Serving Gifted Students from Poverty?’
Ellen Williams, Ed.D.
December 6, 2018, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. Central
Is there equity in your school’s gifted program? Do the demographics reflect the demographics of your campus as a whole? Gifted programs often serve wealthy and middle class students and exclude students from poverty. This webinar will address how to identify gifted students from poverty using easy-to-use instruments and detailed procedures, and it will outline a complete process for finding gifted students from poverty. Williams will also address strategies and supports to retain students and foster success in gifted programs, suggestions for behavioral interventions in gifted programs, and techniques for working with parents. Williams will briefly discuss how to use the Teacher Perception Inventory and Environmental Opportunities Profile instruments.
