Troy University will host the Fifth Annual Gifted Education Conference for parents and teachers of high-ability K-2 students at the Dothan Campus on Saturday, April 6, from 9:30 – 3 p.m. in the Michelin Room in the Library/Technology Building.
This year’s theme is developing early interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The free event is sponsored by the College of Education and is aimed at helping parents and teachers better meet the needs of high-ability students in kindergarten through second grade.
“Typically, students are not identified and served in gifted programs until third grade. Therefore, we want to provide parents and classroom teachers with techniques that can enrich the curriculum for K-2 students prior to enrollment in a gifted program,” said Dr.
