Specialist Teachers of the Gifted: Positioning Their Roles in New Zealand
Riley, Tracy
Australasian Journal of Gifted Education, v28 n2 p47-52 Dec 2019
In 2019, New Zealand advocates for gifted education created a shared position statement on the roles of specialist teachers of the gifted. The statement acknowledges that all teachers are teachers of the gifted, and require formal and informal learning about giftedness; it also outlines teaching, coordination, advocacy, and leadership roles which are embedded in a set of specialist teacher capabilities. Providing teachers with a continuum of informal and formal learning, from preservice through to advanced postgraduate study and research, is called for to develop a community of gifted education practitioners in New Zealand.
