This AIG Booster Shots were developed in direct response to district and teacher needs. These sessions will provide you the tools needed for a professional development series that is meaningful (and quick!) and can support teachers with instruction for AIG learners tomorrow!

The AIG Booster Shots will help you to facilitate mini-pd sessions focused on best gifted instructional practices. They are designed to be 30-45 minutes with the primary audience being K-12 teachers who have already had professional development regarding gifted and differentiation before, but need a reminder. Hence, the name – AIG Booster Shots. The AIG Booster Shots may also be used to introduce differentiation and best practices for AIG/advanced learners to teachers. You may need to adapt some of the content.

Each AIG Booster Shot includes the following components:

  • Powerpoint presentation with audio file on individual slides.
  • Powerpoint presentation without audio file.
  • Script, which matches the audio.
  • Facilitator’s Guide, including Background Information, Resources, and Follow-Up Activities

Please use these components and adapt as needed to your context.

The voice on the audio is Dr. Caroline Cunningham Eidson. DPI contracted with Dr. Eidson for the development of these AIG Booster Shots.
