In 2020 the WATG Acceleration Committee published their report on the use of Academic Acceleration in Wisconsin: Moving Wisconsin Forward. Another goal of our committee is to improve professional development about academic acceleration for our schools.
I have exciting news! The National Center for Research on Gifted Education is doing that and more in 2021 with their national study, “Supporting Academic Acceleration in Schools.” This study will benefit students, educators, and families in Wisconsin. The study will provide professional development about acceleration, support in expanding the use of acceleration in your school, and help utilizing a universal screening system in your district!
Many of the best primary researchers in the field of gifted education, including experts from the Acceleration Institute at the University of Iowa, Dr. Scott Peters from UW-Whitewater and the University of Connecticut are seeking participants now at this link.
