Introduction to Gifted Education Wins Legacy Award

AUSTIN, Texas—Prufrock Press’s Introduction to Gifted Education has received a prestigious 2018 Legacy Book Award in the Scholar category. The book, edited by Julia L. Roberts, Ed.D., Tracy Ford Inman, Ed.D., and Jennifer Robins, Ph.D., is the definitive textbook designed to introduce teachers to gifted education.

The Legacy award recognizes outstanding books published in the United States that have long-term potential for positively influencing the lives of gifted children. The Legacy Book Awards are given each year by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented, the largest state advocacy group of its kind.

Introduction to Gifted Education is inclusive in nature, addressing varied approaches to each topic while relying on no single theory or construct. Topics include gifted education standards, social-emotional needs, cognitive development, diverse learners, identification, programming options, creativity, professional development, and curriculum. The book provides a comprehensive look at each topic, including an overview of big ideas, its history, and a thorough discussion to help those new to the field gain a better understanding of gifted students and strategies to address their needs. A rich companion piece supports the text, providing practical strategies and activities for the instructor (designed for both online classes and face-to-face classes).
