Summer Enrichment Workshop (SEW), the annual program for gifted and talented students sponsored by the Program for Gifted and Talented in Special Education at The University of Alabama, is embarking on its thirty-fith year.
Students who have completed grades K through 8 and are enrolled in gifted programs, with consideration for other qualified students as space permits, are invited to attend.
The majority of teachers in SEW are graduate interns working toward a degree/certification in gifted education. Most of them are already teaching in school gifted programs throughout Alabama. Other teachers are experienced teachers of gifted and talented students from schools in the Tuscaloosa area.
During the three-week program, students are enrolled daily in two sessions (each 1 hour, 45 minutes), with a refreshment break between the sessions.
SEW provides outstanding experiences for both students and UA interns in small, personalized classes, and enrollment in SEW will be strictly controlled on a first-come, first-served basis.
SEW is directed by Dr. Jane Newman in The University of Alabama’s Gifted and Talented Program, College of Education.
