For teachers at the elementary and secondary levels, this guide outlines strategies for teaching gifted learners. Karnes (curriculum, instruction, and special education, U. of Southern Mississippi) and Bean (education, Mississippi U. for Women) bring together 23 chapters that cover the characteristics and needs of gifted learners, curricular design, process skills development, instructional units, evaluating outcomes, supporting and enhancing gifted programs, and practices such as problem-based learning, creative teaching strategies, independent study, mentorships, and classroom simulations. Chapter authors are scholars, researchers, and consultants in gifted education in the US. In addition to being revised and expanded, this edition includes teacher statements and discussion questions in each chapter. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

  • Bookshare Web Reader - a customized reading tool for Bookshare members offering all the features of DAISY with a single click of the "Read Now" link.
