Several states offer additional teacher preparation programs by providing either an endorsement or certification in the field, but these are often pursued by teachers specifically enrolled in gifted coursework rather than in general education programs. Practitioners and researchers agree that time and energy should be spent on training teachers in how to address the needs of gifted and talented students, both within the regular classroom and in specialized programs. This three-book series acknowledges this need and provides specific strategies for professional development in a variety of settings using various methods. Drawing on both literature in the field and research-based best practices in professional learning, this series provides the reader with a foundation for designing and implementing effective professional development experiences for educators working with gifted learners. This volume acknowledges specific challenges facing both practitioners and their students. The authors present strategies and helpful resources related to several special populations and topics unique to the field, such as twice-exceptional learners, underachieving gifted students, the underrepresentation of minorities, acceleration options, and assisting educators to work with parents.

Review by: Helene Rucker, European Council of High Ability-Österreich - December 21, 2020
This three-volume work can be used as a reference book for students in teacher-training programs as well as by teachers for lesson planning and professional development programs, especially regarding the aspect of giftedness. It can also be of great value for schools who emphasize giftedness in their mission statement and intend to implement it.
Review by: Lewie Dunn, Georgia Military College - July 18, 2019
In this volume the second of a three volume set, the editors Novak & Weber have created a working guide for use by educators who work with Gifted Learners. Each chapter is written by leading educators who have researched the various topics and set out a working set of goals for the educator to expand their knowledge in that area and each chapter provides highlights and a full reference section.
