PUBLISHED: Monday, July 22, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas—Prufrock Press’s Talent Development as a Framework for Gifted Education: Implications for Best Practices and Applications in Schools has been announced as the 2019 National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC) Book of the Year Award winner in the Scholar category.

Talent Development as a Framework for Gifted Education: Implications for Best Practices and Applications in Schools, edited by Paula Olszewski-Kubilius, Ph.D., Rena F. Subotnik, Ph.D., and Frank C. Worrell, Ph.D., addresses the need for translation of the talent development model into concrete practices and examples that enable educators to better serve gifted children within their schools and districts. The research behind the talent development framework is briefly reviewed, followed by practical implications for identification and program design within the domains of talent. To illustrate successful approaches, the authors draw on examples from academic domains, as well as performance fields such as sports and music, to help educators and parents develop gifted students’ talents.

The NAGC Book of the Year Award recognizes excellence in books published in gifted and talented education in three categories—Scholar, Practitioner, and Parent/Caregiver. Books are evaluated based on five criteria—utility, relevance, innovation, understanding of content or issue, and evidence provided to support the text or ideas.
