THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE GIFTED (TAG) INVITES YOU TO TAG'S FALL INSTITUTE

 

CELEBRATING DIVERSITY AMONG GIFTED CHILDREN

 

National experts in the field of gifted education will explore important issues in four strands: diversity, twice-exceptional students, curriculum, and social-emotional needs. If you are interested in meeting the social, emotional, and cognitive needs of students from minority, impoverished or rural backgrounds or students who are gifted yet have another exceptionality, then join us in Bowling Green, KY, for a day filled with information, learning, and sharing.
