Susan Rakow, Ph.D., Author

Educating Gifted Students in Middle School: A Practical Guide (3rd ed.) helps educators with the challenging task of understanding and meeting the needs of gifted students in middle school. In addition to basic information on the nature and needs of gifted students, this revised and updated third edition addresses school organization, curriculum models, instructional strategies in the basic subject areas, cocurricular and summer programs, the missing link of executive function skills, and counseling at-risk gifted learners. This book provides a rationale and framework that middle schools can use to fill the service gap for gifted and advanced learners, including those from diverse backgrounds. Teachers, administrators, and parents will learn how to implement effective program models, define the role of the gifted teacher, identify best practices for the classroom, and apply curriculum ideas that are effective and research-based. Educating Gifted Students in Middle School focuses on creative, practical, and realistic school solutions that create a vital and responsive school community for all students.
