Teaching the Gifted Child helps future teachers examine the characteristics of gifted students and presents methods of modeling the classroom curriculum to meet the needs of these gifted students. This thoroughly updated edition gives the latest information, new insights, expanded coverage, and additional pedagogy while retaining the comprehensive scope and excellent writing that have made this a leading text in the field. One of the many enhancements in this new edition is the successful case study device descriptions of five gifted children who appear throughout the text to illustrate the general ideas and concepts presented. These case studies have been enriched with a new addition to the group of children, a young girl named Stephanie who represents a new generation of independence. Other additions include new discussions on intelligence, new thoughts on problem-based curriculum and its implications, and new methods of student evaluation through performance-based and authentic assessments. Special attention has also been paid throughout to non-traditional gifted students, including students from cultural minorities, students with outstanding intellectual gifts, and gifted girls.Gallagher, James J. is the author of 'Teaching the Gifted Child' with ISBN 9780205148288 and ISBN 020514828X.
