This groundbreaking textbook is designed to help education professionals interested in building effective and comprehensive educational opportunities for gifted students. Schools often overlook gifted adolescents. These students are frequently deposited into AP or honors classes that focus on rigorous content, with little or no focus on gifted qualities and how adolescence affects the students’ giftedness. This textbook addressed this critical challenge for gifted education professionals. Each chapter is written by leading scholars and researchers in the field. Education leaders such as Nicholas Colangelo, Susan Assouline, Sally Reis, Donna Ford, Joyce VanTassel-Baska, Carolyn Callahan, and many more fill this comprehensive educational resource. Topics include understanding the gifted adolescent, social/emotional issues, adolescent issues, best practices for curriculum and instruction and programming options (both school-wide and in specific subject areas), teacher education, and professional development. The purpose of the book is to provide a researched-based handbook that views gifted adolescents and their needs as the starting point for building an effective, integrated educational program.
