CaseNEX and Metro RESA are partnering to offer a 10-clock-hour professional development course on the nature and needs of gifted learners at the secondary level for the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate teachers.

In addition to the two week interactive course, teachers will have an additional two weeks to complete their final assignment. Metro RESA will provide 1 CEU to all teachers successfully completely this course.

Frequently, gifted and able students are served by placement in Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses. While these courses provide an accelerated or enriched curriculum, they are not specifically designed to meet the socio-emotional and intellectual needs of gifted students. This course fulfills the 10- hour professional development requirement for Georgia AP/IB teachers (please refer to SBOB Rule 160-4-2-.38, p. 4) and provides AP and IB teachers with background information on gifted students and special populations of gifted students. This online, case-based course presents practical, research- based strategies for differentiating the AP and IB curriculum to help teachers better serve these students.
