AIG Booster Shots were developed in direct response to district and teacher needs. These sessions will provide you the tools needed for a professional development series that is meaningful (and quick!) and can support teachers with instruction for AIG learners tomorrow!
The AIG Booster Shots will help you to facilitate mini-pd sessions focused on best gifted instructional practices. They are designed to be 30-45 minutes with the primary audience being K-12 teachers who have already had professional development regarding gifted students and differentiation before, but need a reminder. Hence, the name: AIG Booster Shots. The AIG Booster Shots may also be used to introduce differentiation and best practices for AIG/advanced learners to teachers. You may need to adapt some of the content.
Each AIG Booster Shot includes the following components:
- Powerpoint presentation with audio file on individual slides.
- Powerpoint presentation without audio
- Script, which matches the audio.
- Facilitator's Guide, including Background Information, Resources, and Follow-Up Activities
