Participants will learn to identify gifted learners from underrepresented groups.  Through a statwide Javits "Expanding Excellence" grant project, we are able to prvide participants with the U-Stars TOPS Observation Guide, which will help them identify students who are otherwise not identified, including minority students, low-income students, students with disabilities, and ELL students.  Participants will also receive two books: Powerful Partnerships - a Teacher's Guide to Engaging Families for Student Success" and "Differentiation for Gifted Learners - Going Beyond the Basics". Explore strategies for differentiating curriculum and discuss family engagement as a part of identifying and teaching gifted students.  Participants will complete a WISEdash data-dig to explore the excellence gap, and practice using TOPS Observation Guide.
