This class was great. The text we used was incredibly useful and was full of practical materials that we can use right away in our daily practice.

This class was a great opportunity to dive into GT education. It provided me with strategies to use immediately in my classroom and will help me better reach this population.
Elizabeth Litzelman
This class was terrific. The book provided many valuable resources, strategies, and approaches toward differentiation for GT students that can be implemented without massive adjustments to the classroom or teaching styles. Anne Sutton was a great instructor - providing valuable and timely feedback that allowed me to think more deeply about ideas and build upon my knowledge. She also provided many different resources to me based upon ideas I wrote about during discussion topics and weekly journals. I highly recommend this course.
