  Gifted Education K-12

Many children simply do not thrive within the structure of a traditional classroom. While they remain in the current stream of the school system, their unlocked potential may signal the same distress as a fish out of water. To unlock the potential of gifted students, a challenging environment of flexible, individualized, and engaging learning methods must be introduced. Teaching gifted students is about tapping in to their intellect, interests and imagination, creativity, and leadership capabilities. Lindenwood University invites you to share in the excitement of a unique program enabling teachers the tools, strategies, and competencies necessary to lead their gifted and talented students out into the deep.
