Enrichment 4 Kids Gifted Education Specialist Cindy Dwyer will be moderating a webinar for the National Association for Gifted Children.  Here's a short description of the webinar:

February 8, 7:00 pm
Common Core State Standards: What Gifted Leaders Need to Know
Joyce VanTassel-Baska, College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, VA

The "Common Core" State Standards (CCSS) are here to stay and implementation is moving quickly.  Just what are the implications for gifted education?  Although the CCSS are considered to be more rigorous than most current state standards, they fall short in meeting the specific needs of gifted learners.  How can the gifted education community get involved?  How do we align the CCSS to gifted education programming standards?  Learn how gifted education content, instruction and program delivery will be shaped differently in this new world, and what resources are available to help you continue to advocate for specialized services for academically advanced students.
