This second edition provides busy teachers, other educational professionals and parents with user-friendly text and worksheets to enable them to identify and provide provision for gifted and talented children.
The author takes a multi-dimensional view of ability and believes in educating the whole child, with a curriculum of opportunity that provides high level learning experiences.
The book has been updated in view of the developments in the education of gifted and talented children, with particular attention paid to: strategies for differentiation; thinking skills; and subject-specific enrichment.
This book is a practical companion to the author's popular "The Challenge of the Able Child", (David Fulton Publishers, 1997).
By using many photocopiable worksheets and helpful checklists, and always bearing in mind the needs of the busy practitioner, this book should prove useful for anyone working in this area of education.
Teachers, GATCOs, teaching assistants and parents should find the information clear and the suggested strategies rooted in good practice for teaching children of all abilities.
