In July, the Belin-Blank Advanced Leadership Institute at the University of Iowa will focus on academic acceleration, the most under-utilized, yet best-researched educational option for gifted students. The four editors of A Nation Empowered: Evidence Trumps the Excuses Holding Back America’s Brightest Students together have over a century of experience teaching, counseling, researching, and providing programs for gifted students. This two-volume book provides the latest research on academic acceleration as well as stories about individuals who have accelerated and teachers, parents, and others who have been involved with acceleration decisions.
Why are the editors, Drs. Susan Assouline, Nicholas Colangelo, Joyce VanTassel-Baska, and Ann Lupkowski-Shoplik, such passionate advocates for acceleration? At the Institute, you will hear the answer directly from them. Bring your questions about acceleration, policy, and gifted education, and learn from an interactive session while enjoying a delicious dessert!
