The April 2016 session of this course has been cancelled.
This course is designed to develop an understanding of policy, advocacy, and professional responsibilities related to gifted education. The student will examine administration from the point of view of a sole practitioner or as a member of a staff of gifted educators. Relevant research related to goals, philosophy, and evaluation as a program administrator will be discussed. Students will learn about funding, budgets, and relevant legislation in their state. Staff development and program evaluation will be examined to further the development of a school program.
Before the start of class, students will need to purchase the book: Designing Services and Programs for High-ability Learners by Jeanne Purcell and Rebecca Eckert, available at Amazon.com or Corwin Press.
Course Syllabus Syllabus will be update in Sept. 2015.
