    When do gifted students, and all students, learn and flourish? They say a student doesn’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. As a teacher, the way to show this is by building relationships. When you foster learning relationships in your classroom, every student will begin to flourish. There are specific skills and strategies that help promote successful learning partnerships.

    Dr. Joyce Juntune not only teaches you those strategies, she helps you create a roadmap for your classroom. Once the skills are in place you can trust students more to do something on their own initiative!

    When questioning ceases, the learning stops. Questioning allows your students to build the habit of curiosity. In education, sometimes we think learning is all about the answers, but there is also an art to teaching students to be inquisitive. Great questioning is best taught by teachers who model great questions. This course shows you how.

    Each year, thousands of gifted students go undiscovered in our classrooms. Without accurate identification, many of these students will never reach their full potential or benefit from the great resources available in our gifted programs. As teachers and educators in gifted education, one of our top priorities should be the screening, assessment, and identification of our gifted students.

    The unique needs and attributes of gifted children extend beyond merely their accelerated cognitive development. They are divergent from average children in social and emotional arenas as well. Because they have special intellectual, emotional, imaginational, psycho-motor, and sensual energies that need to be understood, respected and sometimes redirected it is essential that school districts have a deep understanding of how these children operate beyond just meeting their intellectual needs. In this course, Dr. Juntune will guide you through the unique social and emotional world of a gifted child and demonstrate how schools, teachers and administrators can best serve these children and provide them with the whole person education that they have a right to.
