Proven Strategies That Really Work for Teaching Gifted and Advanced Learners is a collection of research-based strategies designed for advanced learners in cluster-grouped general education as well as those in self-contained classes for gifted students. The strategies focus on key areas of importance to educators, including assessment, content, instruction, and acceleration of learning. The book is not intended as a textbook, but rather is designed for educators who are looking for strategies they can implement in real-life situations. The strategies encompass a wide variety of topics. The accompanying forms and reproducibles are user-friendly resources designed to help teachers maximize their students’ learning. For educators who work with advanced learners, these materials should become a basic, “go-to” resource.
