Description

For courses in Giftedness, and Gifted/Talented Education.

This top-selling comprehensive text by leaders in the field presents the best practices in gifted education.

The sixth edition has been thoroughly revised, most notably with the latest research on acceleration, curriculum models, underachievement, culturally and economically disadvantaged students, gender issues, and dual exceptionalities. The content is further supported and enhanced by the inclusion of numerous practical strategies that can be implemented in the classroom, case studies that help teachers identify student needs, summaries of research on effective programs, emphasis on pedagogy and on social-emotional needs, heightened awareness of less visible sub-groups within gifted populations, and an amusing, witty writing style that adds to the appeal of this best-selling book.

Features

  • NEW! Thoroughly updated descriptions of acceleration, enrichment, and grouping options such as the Templeton Report on acceleration and the Parallel Curriculum Model are highlighted in the text to help teachers in both their understanding of what is available for gifted students and planning a program that includes sensible options.
  • NEW! Discussion of underachievement, cultural and economic disadvantage, female underachievement, learning and emotional disabilities (dual exceptionalities), over-diagnosis and misdiagnosis of disorders. Case studies of underachieving giftedness give readers a deeper insight into these pertinent issues.  
  • NEW! Teacher’s Guidebook for instructors available for adopters of the sixth edition text. The instructor’s guide features a wealth of information to use with students, including discussion questions, project suggestions, and sample tests.  
  • Leaders in the field and core themes in every chapter. Unique Introductory Quotations are provided by some of gifted education’s top minds and point to the main themes of each chapter, and the End of Chapter Summary ties the thoughts and content together.  
  • Ready-to-use and modifiable sample forms for identification of giftedness help clarify and simplify the highly critical identification process, with examples of forms used in schools, and a broad overview of a variety of test instruments along with the strengths and weaknesses of using these types of forms with gifted students.  
  • Creativity and teaching thinking skills are two concepts central to gifted education and will help readers understand creative students, creative processes, and how to foster high-levels of creative thinking. Immediate strategies and lesson plans that can be adapted to the classroom at all grade levels are an added bonus.  
  • Considerations of parenting, social-emotional needs and counseling are introduced, alerting readers to the affective needs of gifted students. Counseling strategies as well as parenting needs are covered to show readers how to reach out and communicate with the families of gifted children.
