This book provides educators with findings and recommendations about how talent develops in individuals. Using case studies, researchers and gifted educators explore key concepts from psychology and neuroscience that can support the optimal performance of gifted and talented students. Cases focus on thinking programs for gifted preschoolers, motivation loss and stereotype threat in talented adolescents, and teacher beliefs about instructional practice in elementary classrooms. The project was developed by the National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented (NRC/GT) and is the result of a collaboration of psychologists, cognitive neuroscientists and gifted education researchers from the NRC/GT, NAGC, and the American Psychological Association.
