The National Association for Gifted Children states that the Common Core State Standards are not sufficient on their own for gifted learners, and if adhered to without differentiation, may limit learning of gifted students. The Illinois State Board of Education invites classroom teachers to deepen their understanding of how to teach and reach gifted and talented students. The goal of the training, "Educators will be able to create an environment to identify gifted and talented learners, address their diverse needs, and measure student growth in the classroom," will be accomplished through the exploration of topics including perspectives on giftedness, knowing the "whole child," curriculum models and differentiation.
