Working with Gifted Students: Social and Emotional Needs, Co-teaching,
and Developing a School AIG Plan (course 3 of 3 for Local AIG Certificate)
This professional development is the third of three mini-courses which will allow teachers to learn about the social and emotional characteristics of gifted students. Time will also be spent exploring effective co-teaching strategies and developing school based plans for AIG services. This professional development will include face-to-face and online components. Upon successful completion of the three mini-courses, a teacher will earn the Onslow County Schools certificate for teaching gifted students. The other two courses focus on an overview of gifted education and differentiation for gifted learners.
This professional development does not lead to a license for teaching gifted students (a license can only be earned through a series of university courses). The local certificate will meet the requirements of Standard 3D of the NC AIG Program Strategic Plan.
