Welcome to All About AIG with Mrs. Hinnant! I am excited you have stopped by to visit! Please review the information below and also be sure to check out the other pages through the links above! - Mrs. Hinnant :)
AIG stands for A cademically I ntellectually G ifted. Each state has its very own set of guidelines and policies in place from its legislative board. North Carolina has been fortunate enough to have our legislation governing gifted education since 1961. Please click on the link just below to view the North Carolina K-12 Article 9B. This document outlines the current legislation mandating the identification and also the services for gifted education in the state.
North Carolina Definition of Gifted The NC definition of AIG Students, Article 9B, retrieved from the North Carolina Academically or Intellectually Gifted Program Standards Document is:
Academically or intellectually gifted students perform or show the potential to perform at substantially high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. Academically or intellectually gifted students exhibit high performance capability in intellectual areas, specific academic fields, or in both the intellectual areas and specific academic fields. Academically or intellectually gifted students require differentiated educational services beyond those ordinarily provided by the regular educational program. Outstanding abilities are present in students from all cultural groups, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor.

Mrs. Hinnant's Philosophy of Gifted Education My definition of giftedness is a quality that some student’s posses, where they display academic or intellectual advancement from the rest of their grade level peers. Concepts or ideas come naturally to these students with little to no review or re-teaching necessary. I feel it is very important to provide these AIG students with appropriate differentiation and not just giving them extra work. We want to help nurture our AIG student’s talents and abilities by tapping into their higher order thinking skills. Appropriately differentiating lessons is necessary to help these students grow academically.
