THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE GIFTED (TAG) INVITES YOU TO TAG'S FALL INSTITUTE
CELEBRATING DIVERSITY AMONG GIFTED CHILDREN
National experts in the field of gifted education will explore important issues in four strands: diversity, twice-exceptional students, curriculum, and social-emotional needs. If you are interested in meeting the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of students from minority, impoverished or rural backgrounds or students who are gifted yet have another exceptionality, then join us in Bowling Green, KY, for a day filled with information, learning, and sharing.
Dr. Krystal Goree, Baylor University School of Education, will provide one of the keynotes: What Administrators Need to Know about Diversity Among Gifted Children.
Rutgers University's Dr. Fred Bonner will conduct a keynote lunch entitled African-American Males in P-16 Contexts.
