Everything you wondered about Gifted Education but were afraid to ask- is right here in this book!
This book is an excellent resource for any teacher who is contemplating a career in Gifted Education. It's easy to read and understand. It's an awesome resource for teachers and even parents of gifted learners wanting to understand gifted language, laws, and ways to help children be successful learners. This book asks questions, provides answers and resources all the while pushing the readers' own knowledge base. I highly recommend adding this book to your resources as a go too when talking to others about the gifted learner.

The best reference book for Gifted and Talented Education!
The Teacher’s Survival Guide: Gifted Education, is a must have for any teacher that works with gifted children! The book is designed in such a way that new teachers and veteran teachers alike will benefit from the knowledge gathered from a wide range of experts in the field of gifted education. The chapters are broken into topics that focus on a certain aspect of gifted education which makes it perfect as a reference guide, especially when you are trying to find a quick answer. The layout is great and I love the survival toolkit at the end of each chapter since it gives more resources if you are wanting to go more in-depth. This is one of the books that will be on my desk at school for quick access when I have a GT question and I can’t wait to share this with all of my colleagues!
