Classrooms are as diverse as ever, and as a result, historically underrepresented students need to be included in gifted education programs that serve all of our most able students. These books will guide educators in serving and supporting special populations of gifted learners.

  • Unlocking Potential: Identifying and Serving Gifted Students From Low-Income Households focuses on ways to translate the latest research and theory into evidence-supported practices that impact how schools identify and serve these students. Unlocking Potential is the go-to resource for an up-to-date overview of best practices in identification, curriculum, instruction, community support, and program design for gifted learners from low-income households.

  • Understanding Twice-Exceptional Learners: Connecting Research to Practice offers an in-depth look at the needs and lived experiences of students who are twice-exceptional. Each chapter includes a comprehensive literature review, suggested interventions, resources for further exploration, and vignettes that highlight experiences of twice-exceptional students and the behaviors and needs that practitioners might commonly see in the classroom.

  • Serving Gifted Students in Rural Settings outlines practical, theoretical, and evidence-supported approaches for understanding, teaching, and leading programs for this unique population. Case study vignettes and practical ideas for administrators and teachers are combined with theoretical applications. This book helps bridge the gap existing between rural education and accessible, effective gifted education.

  • Special Populations in Gifted Education: Understanding Our Most Able Students From Diverse Backgrounds brings together the leading experts in the field, who combine both knowledge of and leadership experience with gifted students from diverse backgrounds. This edited book helps to raise the awareness level and knowledge base of all educators, particularly teachers of the gifted, who work with a kaleidoscope of special populations in gifted education.

  • Multicultural Gifted Education (2nd ed.) bridges the gap that exists between educating advanced learners and educating culturally different learners. Multicultural Gifted Education addresses various topics, including racially and culturally diverse students and families, historical and legal perspectives on educating gifted culturally diverse students, culturally responsive curriculum and assessment, and counseling students from a multicultural perspective.
