wku center gifted 300BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (8/27/13) – The Association for the Gifted (TAG), a division of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), will be holding its 2013 Fall Institute on Sept. 6 at WKU’s Knicely Conference Center.
 
The TAG Fall Institute, which has a theme of “Celebrating Diversity Among Gifted Children,” will feature national experts in the field of gifted education exploring important issues related to diversity among gifted children. Areas of focus will include diversity, twice-exceptional students, curriculum that supports diversity, and social-emotional needs.
 
Mahurin Professor of Gifted Education at Western Kentucky University and TAG President Dr. Julia Roberts welcomes all to WKU’s campus for a day filled with information, learning and sharing.
 
“The four strands of the Institute highlight important connections between gifted children and their experiences in school and in their lives outside of school,” Dr. Roberts said.
 
Two keynote speakers will be featured during the one-day workshop. Baylor University School of Education Professor Dr. Krystal Goree will provide her keynote titled “What Administrators Need to Know about Diversity Among Gifted Children.” The second keynote will be during lunch and will feature Rutgers University’s Dr. Fred Bonner presenting “African-American Males in P-16 Contexts.”
 
A total of 12 session will be available to participants, each conducted by a member of TAG’s Board of Directors who are leading experts in the field of gifted education.
 
Dr. Roberts said the Institute is open to anyone with an interest in learning more about gifted education. “The Institute will be a perfect place for parents, elementary and secondary teachers, school leaders, and counselors to learn together,” she said.
