Gifted Education/Endorsement Requirements
The Gifted Education specialists and coordinators of Region 1 are pleased that 4 classes (12 hours of graduate-level coursework) are required; however, we request consideration that the topics (rather than specific titles) of the courses include: 1) social-emotional and special populations, 2) curriculum models and differentiation, 3) identification and assessment, and 4) program planning and evaluation (rather than current trends). The change in #4 is to address the important ongoing work of gifted coordinators in evaluating the Gifted Education Plan/program of their districts.
