Although most teacher education programs offer classes on special education and English language learners, teachers often do not receive any training in the needs of high-ability students or gifted education practices. This book prepares inservice and preservice teachers to educate high-ability students by informing them of best practices and research. Each chapter opens with a driving question and a list of learning targets related to various topics, including key philosophies, theories and models; educational factors that enhance or inhibit talent development; characteristics of advanced learners; and the role of culture, ethnicity and language in the identification process. These learning targets are addressed through a combination of research and practical strategies, as well as a selection of activities to check for teacher understanding. This concise, user-friendly resource is perfect for both individual and collaborative learning, providing future teachers with everything they need to meet the needs of advanced learners.
