Gifted Education and Gifted Students
A Guide for Inservice and Preservice Teachers
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.
