It is hard to believe that the school year is half over. Holiday break is in the rear view mirror and it is back to the “classroom” for those working with high-ability students. NAGC worked hard in 2014 to prepare you for the year ahead, producing new resources, offering ways to engage with the larger community, and increasing the value of membership. Along with new resources, this New Year will bring challenges for the advocate. It is time to redouble efforts to educate decision makers – especially those who are new to their office/position -- about the needs of gifted and talented children. Please note the deadline below for submitting convention proposals, award nominations, and election materials.
Begin by reading the 2014 Convention in Review message written by NAGC President Tracy L. Cross. Then explore the latest resources from NAGC below.
Be sure to visit the NAGC Common Core webpage for a wealth of resources and materials, including links to NAGC Common Core Publications.
Visit the NAGC Online Store for full selection of publications.
