Being Smart about Gifted Children: A Guidebook for Parents and Educators
The 'mysteries' of giftedness are unveiled in this book. The authors invite parents and educators to step into the 'mystery' and 'mastery' models of gifted education, to learn ways of developing a child's natural abilities, and to understand controversy surrounding commonly held assumptions in the field. They demonstrate the necessity to match educational experiences with a child's needs at any given time, and then proceed to explain how to make that happen.
