Although the best way to provide professional development for educators is through field experiences and hands-on practice, it is not always easy or even possible to organize such encounters, especially in the field of gifted education. In order to better prepare educators to work with gifted and talented students, Exploring Critical Issues in Gifted Education: A Case Studies Approach presents problem-based learning scenarios that explore authentic situations found in K–12 classrooms. The scenarios can be read and discussed in a short amount of time, allow the reader to gain greater understanding through empathy, require an analysis of multiple perspectives, and support the standards of excellence set forth in the 2010 NAGC Pre-K–Grade 12 Gifted Education Programming Standards. Using the cases in the book, educators will gain the insight needed to improve the identification of and services for gifted and talented students in light of these standards.

Review: Gifted Child Today - June 20, 2014
Exploring Critical Issues in Gifted Education: A Case Studies Approach utilizes case studies to provide professional development in a nontraditional but effective way . . . The interactive format of the book allows for a thought-provoking journey en route to examining and understanding a plethora of issues and topics related to gifted education.
