GERRIC Module 1: Giftedness or Talent?

Four (4) Contact Hours Overview:  Welcome to MRESC's online gifted professional development modules.  Each of these modules utilizes the GERRIC gifted modules from UNSW as a foundation to guide you through the eight gifted competencies with research-based guidance on gifted students; reflective activities; and quizzes designed to check for understanding and mastery.  This module introduces the definitions of "giftedness" and explores the differences between "giftedness" and "talent"; "bright" vs. "gifted". (Contact hours vary per module.)
