Announcing TEMPO Plus

In August 2020, TAGT will launch TEMPO Plus, the next iteration of the TAGT publication. TEMPO Plus blends the research-based, peer-reviewed content of our journal with an online, dynamic, searchable platform to bring members and the gifted community even more resources to meet their needs. Our resource library will be expanded to include research articles, white papers, best practices, success stories, models and samples, templates, videos, tip sheets, audio recordings, and 40 years of TEMPO archives.
For more than 40 years, TEMPO, the peer-reviewed quarterly journal published by Texas Association for the Gifted & Talented (TAGT) has focused on promoting awareness of issues in gifted education and providing information on research and best practices in the field. The continued success of the TEMPO Journal is due to the incredible leadership of our TEMPO Editors, most recently Krys Goree, Ph.D., Cindy Little, Ph.D., Jennifer Jolly, Ph.D., and Michael Cannon, the many present and past members of TAGT TEMPO Editorial and Peer-Review Boards, and all who have contributed to the impressive content for over 40 years, including our regular contributors Susan Johnsen, Ph.D. and Joyce Miller, Ph.D.
 
As TAGT works to build upon the successes that these and so many other gifted education experts have had in providing our members with trusted, relevant, and innovative resources, we are excited to announce that TEMPO is transforming!

Both TAGT Members and eSubscribers will have access to everything TEMPO Plus has to offer. We are also excited to offer TAGT Members with a new way to engage with their association by contributing to TEMPO Plus as part of our Knowledge Teams. These teams will work with Resource Committees and peers to create content as identified by our committees.
 
The final two issues of the TEMPO Journal will be published this spring, focused on STEM and the future of gifted education in Texas, and more information on TEMPO Plus will be released with the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
 
TAGT would like to thank the TEMPO Task Force, a diverse group of TAGT members who worked for 12 months to review member survey data, conduct focus groups, and brainstorm ways to best meet our member needs, for their dedicated, thoughtful work. We are thrilled at the opportunity to implement this innovative platform and look forward to launching with the new school year!
