Be an Advocate for Gifted and Talented Learners!

ITAG needs you to advocate for important issues affecting gifted learners.

By advocating you can make a difference in the life and education of gifted and talented students in Iowa. Effective advocacy is more than just being passionate about gifted education. It is also knowing how to convey your message without alienating those who influence the decision-making process. You don’t need to have a knowledge of statistics or legislation to be able to advocate for these children to have the opportunity to grow, develop, and reach their potential.

Are you ready to advocate for gifted education? Start by reading Advocating for Gifted Education in Iowa, a presentation prepared by ITAG that summarizes roles and processes at all levels of advocacy.

NAGC offers advice on advocacy and has a presentation on getting started with federal advocacy.
