Review by: Joanne Foster, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education - January 1, 2008
The Handbook of Secondary Gifted Education covers an impressive range of topics, and facilitates understanding of adolescent development, schooling, and gifted-related issues. It should be in every pedagogical library and, ideally, on every educator's bookshelf.
Review: Davidson Institute for the Gifted - January 1, 2006
The Handbook of Secondary Gifted Education is a highly readable collection of scholarship with contributions from several leading researchers and theorists in the field . . . The text, divided into twenty-five chapters and four major sections, offers a comprehensive examination of the complex intersections between secondary education, adolescence and giftedness . . . The scope is ambitious yet at no point does the text lose sight of the theoretical cohesion or practical applicability that characterize genuinely inspired interpretations of research. Regardless of whether or not a reader shares all of the views presented by these authors, he or she will undoubtedly come away from this book feeling considerably more informed about the central issues of gifted secondary education and more capable of serving the needs of gifted adolescents.
