ME.GIED - Gifted Education
The gifted program emphasizes research and practical application. Through research you will build your educational philosophy, and you will be encouraged to present at conferences or submit articles for publication. Then you will test what you've discovered through hands-on experience. Whether designing a conference to help parents understand their gifted child's needs or participating in Threshold, you will refine your educational philosophy in real-world situations.
