Starting with a plan to ensure that gifted kids thrive in the classroom, the book then asks teachers to examine their school setting, suggesting ways to involve school personnel such as librarians, counselors, arts teachers, and others in a team approach to ensuring the unique learning needs of gifted students are met.Along the way, topics essential to gifted education teachers are examined in detail, with the authors providing tips and strategies for recognizing and identifying giftedness, encouraging creativity, removing the learning ceiling, and providing the multiple opportunities and resources gifted kids need. The authors offer valuable suggestions for communicating with parents, as well as resources to guide teachers on their journey toward making their school a placewhere gifted kids can find academic and personal success.
