Presenter: Dr. Laurie Croft, Clinical Professor of Gifted Education, Associate Director for Professional Development, Belin-Blank Center for Gifted Education.

This session will engage students in a discussion of their perceptions about gifted education, look at Iowa Code as an example of state requirements for school districts to serve advanced learners, and look at the endorsement process, comparing states such as Iowa, Illinois, and Nebraska. Who are gifted learners and why do they need special programming?
