Helping Gifted Children Soar
A Practical Guide for Parents and Teachers (1st Edition)
This book discusses “the world’s biggest, highest, and longest roller coaster”—the one called parenting a gifted child. Discover how to enjoy the ride by learning about important gifted issues such as evaluating classroom programs, working with schools, choosing appropriate curriculum, forming parent support groups, meeting children’s social and emotional needs, finding resources and support, surviving the ups and downs, and much more! The authors discuss the ideal classroom, differentiation of curriculum, the use of contracts and independent study, and the importance of parent-teacher communication. Several large school districts have purchased a copy of this book for every elementary school teacher to help the teachers understand the characteristics of gifted children and how to offer them appropriate challenge.
