The folks at MUW's Education Department host a one day conference every spring semester called TGIF, Teacher's of the Gifted Instructional Forum. This year, in response to participant's requests last year, the W asked Lowndes County School District and the Columbus Municipal School District to each do a one hour presentation on innovative practices in their classrooms. The teachers attending the forum wanted something that they could take home and use!
Here I am sharing a short history of our gifted education program and a unit that the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade teachers at New Hope had created at the beginning of school this year, "Raise the Flag for a New Generation". We studied about Old Glory and how to properly retire the flag as well as about 9/11.
