Wonderful Guide to the Web
The Ultimate Guide to Internet Resources for Teachers of Gifted Students:

This is a wonderful guide to the web especially for teachers of gifted students.  The topical organization of the book makes it easy for teachers to locate available resources in various areas including national organizations, student programs, lesson planning, independent study projects, and online classes.  Resources for children of all ages are included.  Each resource is presented along with a brief annotation highlighting that resource’s materials and possibilities for classroom use.  Special sections are included containing web resources pertaining to each major academic content area, foreign language, fine arts and even service learning opportunities.  This is a must-have resource for teachers seeking to provide more computer-based learning for students or for teachers who want to have more resources available to them when planning curriculum and enrichment activities.
