Summary

This leading introduction to gifted and talented children retains proven parts of its original structure and combines it with the knowledge and best practices from a variety of sources. It incorporates knowledge from many disciplines and integrates best practices from classrooms to inform readers of how to work with children who grow up gifted and bring their gifts to the world. The author encourages readers to understand intelligence in order to help more children realize their unique potential of gifts and talents. New chapters contain the latest information on "hot" areas of interest: Outreach of Programs and Program Evaluation, and Planning for Integrative Education: Using Brain Research in the Classroom. A unique chapter on diversity considers the impact of gender, race, ethnicity, and poverty on the development and expression of giftedness--and offers interventions to overcome the barriers these cultural groups might present. Other content includes identification of special students and explores the issues and controversies surrounding the education of these children. For teachers of gifted and talented students.
