Author:

Gary A. Davis, Ph.D.

 

Written in a concise and sometimes humorous fashion, this textbook was written for introductory courses in gifted education. However, it also is helpful to parents whose children have been newly identified as gifted, explaining how gifted programs in schools generally operate. Frankenstein, Pinocchio, and other characters highlight a scenario at the beginning of each chapter that helps to explain how educators can cultivate the talents of gifted children. There are noteworthy obstacles to achieving the successful education of gifted and talented students, but they can be overcome, and this book is a valuable tool for doing so. Dr. Davis’s dry humor and user-friendly explanations will create an enjoyable learning experience for college and university students, as well as educators and parents of gifted students.

Topics include:

  • Identifying giftedness and intelligence
  • Understanding educational policies
  • Describing methods for grade and subject acceleration
  • Enriching programs to ensure that children reach their potential
