ESCCO Educator Gifted Course 1 (6/10/19-7/26/19) – 30 hours – Introduction to Nature, Needs, Curriculum, Instruction – first in series of two

The Gifted Operating Standards for the State of Ohio have been revised to recognize the importance of supporting professional development for general education classroom teachers. To address these changes and prepare teachers to meet them, the ESCCO has developed an Educator Gifted Academy, consisting of two courses that focus on the nature and needs of and curriculum and instruction for gifted students. After successful completion of Course I, participants will receive a certificate that qualifies them to be counted as service providers for gifted students. An optional two semester hours of graduate credit will also be available to purchase for an additional $498. (Participants must also complete Course II by the end of the 2019-20 academic year in order to continue to serve gifted students.) The first course consists of an in-person, four hour class (date to be determined) and online readings, exercises, and assignments. The total number of devoted hours awarded for the 2019-20 school year equals the required 30 clock hours. Facilitators of this course have gifted endorsements and direct teaching experiences with K-12 gifted students, K-12 content areas (including mathematics), media and technology, and guidance and counseling. Instructors are: Patricia Farrenkopf, Holly Kramer, Valerie Jasinski, Deb Logan & Diane McClaskey. Questions about course content can be directed to Colette.Smith@escco.org. Note: Districts with 18 or more participants, the courses are available to host at the district. Contact Colette.Smith@escco.org to arrange.
