The Gifted Child Today Reader series brings together the best articles published in Gifted Child Today, the nation's most popular gifted education journal. Each book in this series is filled with exciting and practical classroom ideas, useful summaries of research findings, discussions of identification and classroom management, and informed opinions about educating gifted kids. Anyone involved in gifted education will benefit from the practical, research-based ideas this unique series has to offer.

A differentiated curriculum for gifted science students needs to be organized around basic scientific principles that require more advanced levels of thinking and complex processes. Many of the authors provide units of study and specific lessons that model best practices in teaching science.

Science Education for Gifted Students begins with creative ways to engage children in the primary years, thus ensuring that they develop a love of science that will last a lifetime. Subsequent chapters deal with acceleration and enrichment in the sciences, including instructional units on magnetic levitation, integrating science and physical education, and real-world archaeology.

Review by: Lois Spangler, National Science Teachers Association - February 28, 2006
This book emphasizes the importance of identifying gifted science students and developing good classroom management strategies to meet their needs. It includes research findings and practical strategies to provide a sound basis for educating gifted students. I highly recommend it for preservice teachers, primary and middle school teachers, curriculum coordinators, and administrators. This is also an excellent book for an afterschool book study discussion group for teachers or school science curriculum team members. It is easy to read and will help teachers find ways to modify their lessons to help them identify and meet the needs of their gifted students.
