Being Smart About Gifted Education
A Guidebook for Educators and ParentsBook - 2009
Written for both parents and educators who work with children of advanced abilities, Drs. Matthews and Foster present practical strategies to identify and nurture exceptionally high ability in children. They promote the "mastery" (rather than the "mystery") model of gifted education and challenge several common practices and assumptions. They offer ways to determine each child's level of learning and say that it is simply appropriate to provide the educational experiences that every child needs at a particular time. Features include: "Mastery" vs. "Mystery" models, How giftedness develops, Relevant brain research, Use and misuse of assessment, Programming options, Social and behavioral concerns, Teacher development processes, Parenting strategies, and more.
