A Message For, and From The President

A 2010 draws to a close so does an amazing era for CAGT. Over the past two years, under the amazing leadership of Dr. Susan Scheibel, the Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented has brought the issues of Colorado’s gifted students to new audiences, hosted two fantastic state conferences, connected with legislatures and advocacy groups, as well as partner and hosted a plethora of events for educators, administrators, and parents a like. Below you can find Dr. Sheibel’s final letter to us all outlining all the wonderful progress we, as a gifted and talented education community, have made under her leadership. While I know that she won’t be leaving us, please join me in thanking her for her tireless efforts on behalf of our gifted students. Our gifted students could never find a better advocate.

      What’s New in Young Adult Literature?

What a fantastic Question. One that teachers and parents a like are always asking, and never have the time to investigate. 

Not to worry, Dr. Bob Seney has done the leg work for you. Below you will find his recommendations. It includes resources for middle school, high school, teacher recommendations, student recommendations, as well as his  “Top 10 Of All Time” list.

Happy Book Hunting Everyone!
