Date: Nov. 4, 2011
Presenters: Del Siegle, Virginia Burney, Ann Sheldon, Jane Clarenbach and Julie Gonzalez

During these times, the voices of advocates for gifted programs must be heard louder and more clearly than usual. During this session, learn tips for increasing advocacy success with state and local leaders. Advocacy begins at home, and it must involve everyone interested in providing appropriate educational opportunities for gifted children. This session helps you let your voice be heard.


Common Core State Standards and Smarter Balanced Consortium: Implications for Gifted Education
Date: Nov. 5, 2011
Presenters: Elissa Brown and Geoff Coltrane

The Common Core State Standards Initiative, a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), has created a set of common, grade-level standards for English-language arts and mathematics for grades K-12. The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and national experts to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare students for college and the workforce.
