For experienced certified teachers who wish to add a Gifted Education endorsement (P-12) to their certification. These courses may be taken alone to earn the endorsement or may be added to our Teacher Leader degree program for a Rank change.

What You Learn

The basic tenet of the Gifted Education endorsement is to empower candidates to learn about the characteristics and needs of gifted students and how they are identified for services in the schools. Serving the gifted involves teaching the students in various settings, and may include collaboration with administrators and other teachers. You will also study organization of professional development for school faculty and how to advocate for the gifted to teachers, parents, and others.

How You Learn

This is a fully online cohort. Face-to-face class meetings are not required. You will log into the online classroom using our online learning management system to participate in online activities which may include assignments, webinars or chats, materials, discussion threads, assessments and/or group activities done electronically. You will finish one course every 7 and a half weeks.

Career Outcomes

Upon completion of this program and a passing score on the required PRAXIS exam, students will receive the Gifted Education endorsement for grades P-12.
