Early Identification Using Picture Books

Saturday, November 11
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: 213 BC

Many school systems do not identify children gifted until third grade or later--but the children may have needed gifted programming all along. Often, programs suffer from lack of hard data, because achievement tests are not typically given until third grade. Unfortunately, not identifying young students comes at a tremendous cost, particularly a danger of underachievement.
Presenters explore the use of picture books to create higher-level, rich discussions that teachers can use to gain insight on potential gifted characteristics in primary students. Part of this session includes resources and developing questions for your own literature selections.
