Gifted and Talented

The PBS TeacherLine Gifted Education Awareness Campaign provides educators, parents and the business community with information about the need for and benefits of authentic, engaged learning for all students, including gifted/talented (G/T) students. PBS TeacherLine, the Texas Education Agency and Region 13 Education Service Center are partnering to explore ways to improve access to and services for traditionally underrepresented populations in gifted education.

Through a comprehensive approach of messaging, the project spotlights successful G/T services, thus inspiring a greater awareness of gifted education.The PBS TeacherLine Gifted Education Awareness Campaign assists Texas school districts to improve their Gifted and Talented student services in all areas, including identification, professional development, curriculum and instruction, and family and community involvement. By featuring innovative methods of identification and spotlighting learning experiences through which students’ potential and growth can be developed, observed, and documented, the Awareness Campaign will inform and inspire a wider audience to support gifted education.

Our kids are normal. They just aren’t typical…
