Do you ever feel like you’re behind the 8-ball when you do a walk-through, or hold a traditional assessment instrument up against a gifted classroom? That doesn’t have to be the case when you have tools specific to assessing gifted classes. Lisa Van Gemert uses her experience evaluating G/T strategies in the classroom to offer a fresh look at assessments.
In this 1-hour course, you will learn to:
- Empower teachers to grow in their strengths
- Discern the difference between good goals and ambiguous goals
- Look past personal preferences to give effective assessments
- Use language that fosters healthy relationships with teachers
This course is aligned with 2016 ODE Teacher Competencies a, b, c, e, f, g and NAGC Teacher Preparation Standards 2.2, 3.3, 3.4, 5.1.
