Education of the gifted and talented
In the mid 1970s, interest in accommodating the educational needs of gifted and talented children began its climb to higher levels with greater public awareness. Federal statements, definitions, funds, and professional staff were created, and state legislation formalized the existence and needs of gifted children. Now, as we head into a new millennium, this movement has taken a step backward due to a rise in a recommitment to equity in education, growing cooperative teaching, and the economics of funding a program. This book, however, continues to outline the best ideas that have come from leaders in gifted education. This up-to-date and well- organized best-seller begins with an overview of current issues and proceeds to characteristics of gifted students, program planning, and identification issues and methods. The problem of underachievement is covered as well as the challenges of parenting, understanding, and counseling gifted children. Designed for teachers and administrators who are seeking to teach gifted children, or to develop or enhance a program for gifted children.
