Lessons Learned from the Two-Year Twice-Exceptional Professional Development in Colorado

Saturday, November 11
8:30 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: 202 B

How can we better support teachers and specialized service professionals to serve gifted students with disabilities? How can we develop and implement professional development activities that, as described in the Every Student Succeeds Act, are “sustained (not stand-alone, 1-day, or short term workshops), intensive, collaborative, job-embedded, data-driven, and classroom-focused"? A case study evaluation is taken to understand the implementation of the two-year twice-exceptional professional development in Colorado. Let’s find out what the study says and exchange ideas and experiences! This presentation is for administrators and educators aiming to advocate more professional learning opportunities on the topic of twice-exceptionality.
