Seeking Teachers of the Gifted for Research on Gifted Education Practices During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Cincinnati are seeking elementary teachers of the gifted to take part in a survey. The survey seeks to understand the gifted education services that were provided for identified gifted elementary learners during virtual or remote instruction that took place during the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years. If you are an elementary school educator who works directly with students identified as gifted, we invite you to take this brief survey. Participant identification will be kept confidential. Results will be used to provide recommendations to improve teaching practices for virtual, blended, or hybrid instruction.
