Building a learning community’s capacity to support the academic and social/emotional needs of gifted students is a major, ongoing effort. And you can’t do it all—all of the NAGC standards for programming—at least not all at once. Further, there is no “right” place to begin or perfect program to copy. Instead, each community benefits by understanding its own culture, needs, strengths, and more. Participants will begin the journey of determining their top priorities for gifted education by: exploring the many facets of gifted education; learning about special considerations of rural gifted education programs that serve students from diverse cultures; using gifted education paradoxes to build consensus around priorities; and learning to identify and avoid biases in planning to meet student needs.
