Using the National Gifted Education Standards for Pre-K?Grade 12 Professional Development by Susan Johnsen, Jane Clarenbach

National teacher preparation standards in gifted and talented education provide the foundation for research-based practices in gifted education and identify what teachers should know and be able to do to ensure that students with gifts and talents realize their full potential. Because the responsibility for teaching gifted learners and those with potential to achieve at high levels is often shared between gifted education program leaders and teachers in general and special education classrooms, this book shows preK—12 education leaders how to develop partnerships, identify professional development outcomes, design learning activities, plan and implement comprehensive training programs, and evaluate the effectiveness of professional development activities. Special attention is paid to effecting change within a state and school system. Tools provided include sample needs assessments, student and teacher observation instruments, and a sample professional development plan.
