A classic in gifted education, Teaching Gifted Kids in Today's Classroom: Strategies and Techniques Every Teacher Can Use promises to "transform the school experiences of your high-ability learners while raising achievement of all of your students." This book is foundational to teaching gifted students providing strategies to help you maintain a gifted-friendly classroom.

In this study, there are nine reading assignments with choices of response-prompts, which you will post in Google Classroom so others in the study will be able to comment or ask questions. Google Classroom access information will be share following registration by the course facilitator.

This book study affords you the comfort of your own space, in your own time, with no substitute plans to prepare. Plus, earn 15 hours toward your gifted hours! Invite a colleague to read and complete the study together!

One hour of college credit is available through Ashland University; a one to two-page reflection on the book is required to receive credit. Contact Kris Dobbelaere ([email protected]) for more details. 

This PD meets core competencies outlined in Ohio's Operating Standards for Gifted Education.
