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.
  • Addresses learning targets through a combination of research and practical strategies.
  • Includes a selection of activities to check for teacher understanding.
  • Is concise and user-friendly.
  • Is perfect for both individual and collaborative learning.

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.
