G/T Update for New Deal ISD
Going Beyond Average: Rethinking Advanced Academic and Gifted Services

Regardless of school size and resources, advanced and gifted students can and should thrive.  The trick lies in the design of program. Too many advanced, dual credit, honors, G/T, pre-AP, AP, and ACT/SAT prep classes are designed to fit the “average” student and focus on students’ weaknesses. In this session, we will examine why academic environments in elementary and secondary designed on the average hinder student potential where  students' talents become a liability leading them to become bored and underchallenged.
