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:

  • Provides strategies and curricular materials/resources for working with gifted learners in specific content areas (i.e., mathematics, science, social studies, literacy, languages, and the arts).
  • Discusses the importance of training teachers to use high-quality curriculum.
  • Builds off of research on talent development, cultural awareness, and social justice in education.
  • Details instructional strategies that are appropriate for challenging gifted learners, including developing growth mindset.

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 - June 25, 2020
The work draws from the need of specific strategies related to professional development and uses a variety of methods to achieve these strategies. It should be made available in media centers for staff development and also in the libraries of colleges and universities that prepare students to be educators.
