Hattiesburg- The Frances
A. Karnes Center for Gifted Studies at The University of Southern
Mississippi is currently conducting a study to determine best practices
in screening, identifying, and serving potentially gifted preschool
students in the state.
The importance of early childhood education has been
well documented. Understanding the best ways of identifying and
serving potentially gifted preschoolers may help secure appropriate
educational experiences for all young children.
Training workshops are being planned to raise awareness
of giftedness among preschool children. Four sessions will be conducted
throughout the state by researchers from the center to share information
gathered from the study with administrators, educators, and parents.
Training events have been scheduled in the following
Biloxi, Mississippi - Tuesday, April 5, from 9 a.m.
Hattiesburg, Mississippi - Thursday, April 14, from
8:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Jackson, Mississippi - Tuesday, April 19, from 9 a.m.
Columbus, Mississippi - Friday, April 22, from 9:30
to 11:30 a.m.
