Touro College is offering the 4 courses for educators who want to teach and develop programs for gifted and talented students.
GATE students who complete a fifth course in the program are eligible for Touro to recommend them for their NYSED extension/annotation in teaching gifted and talented students. Students who complete only the first four courses, apply on their own through the Individual Pathway for the NYSED extension/annotation in teaching gifted and talented students.
The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Professional Certificate Program provides a comprehensive examination of the knowledge and skills needed to appropriately serve gifted and talented students. Coursework addresses characteristics and identification, curriculum differentiation and instruction, teaching strategies, social and emotional needs, program development, and appropriate program and student performance evaluation. Each course is based on current research, its application to schools and classrooms, and incorporates the New York recommended standards for programs for gifted students. Courses will be offered throughout the academic year.
