About the course

The Program in Gifted Education of the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Teachers College, Columbia University, offers a 12-credit summer course sequence that allows students who hold, or will soon obtain, a valid initial or professional teaching certificate in New York State to also meet the educational requirements for the New York State certification extension in gifted education.

This certification extension is required in order to teach in gifted education programs in the State of New York. Coursework in this sequence can be used to meet certification requirements in other states as well. Individuals who complete the 12-credit sequence will apply directly to the State Education Department through the individual pathway in order to be granted the certificate extension. The gifted education extension applies to early childhood, elementary, and high school teachers.

Four courses are offered in the summer, and students who start the sequence in mid-May can complete the sequence as early as mid-July. The courses are listed and described on the next page.

One does not need to be a matriculated Teachers College student in order to enroll in this program. One must simply apply for admission as a non-matriculated student to the Teachers College Office of Admission (http://www.tc.edu/admissions). The course sequence is also open to Teachers College students in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching and students in other departments who can take the courses as electives in their programs.

Certificate

Workshop Description: Gifted students are present in almost every elementary, middle school, and high school classroom. The educational needs of these students can and must be met within this context. This workshop will provide an overview of curricular and instructional strategies designed to enhance the optimal development of gifted learners (and all learners) in the regular classroom. Topics will include general curricular modifications, management techniques, instructional strategies, individual learning opportunities, collaboration with other professionals, and outcomes and assessments. Special consideration will be given to those methods of differentiation that can be integrated readily into the learning environment of mixed-ability classrooms.

The Program in Gifted Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, offers two intensive four-day summer workshops focused on issues that teachers in every classroom face in their professional practice. Each year we welcome teachers, administrators, parents, and others from across the United States and from other countries, providing a rewarding opportunity to learn about how educational practice plays out in a variety of contexts.

Although the workshops can be taken for Teachers College credits, they are also available to educators on a non-credit basis. No previous coursework in gifted education or experience teaching in gifted programs is required in order to benefit from the workshops.
