Using Acceleration and Enrichment

For High-Achieving and Gifted Students

Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV

Gifted Professional Development Series

The first professional development workshop in the Gifted Professional Development Series.

October 27, 2015

There are 3-5 million gifted students in United States. The gifted and high achieving students’ academic growth is similar to low and middle level students in math and grows at a slightly slower rate than low and middle level students in reading. These students show a rate of growth earlier in their academic schooling, but the rate of growth decreases as they move into the middle and secondary grade levels. This session will provide educators with more information about these issues and how developing an acceleration and enrichment program can support student academic growth from Kindergarten to graduation.

Acceleration and enrichment are two terms used within the field of education that focus on the depth, breadth, and pace of a student’s learning. Participants will discover what acceleration and enrichment mean, the benefits of implementing acceleration and enrichment learning, understand the role of the Gifted educator, and learn how they can help support the gifted and high-achieving students in their classrooms through enrichment and/or acceleration.

This workshop will focus on the four Domains of the Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching.
