9781575421162: The Survival Guide for Teachers of Gifted Kids: How to Plan, Manage, and Evaluate Programs for Gifted Youth K–12

Being a gifted education teacher has always posed special challenges. In their first book together, two veteran educators of the gifted give teachers the information, advice, and encouragement they need. They explain how to set the foundation for a gifted program; how to evaluate, identify, and select students; how to plan and implement a range of programming options (including differentiated instruction in the regular classroom, ability grouping, pull-out classes, special classes for gifted students, weighted grades, and others); and how to conduct ongoing program evaluation.

THE SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR TEACHERS OF GIFTED KIDS has won the 2004 Legacy Book Award, presented by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented.

About the Author:

James R. Delisle, Ph.D., has taught gifted children and those who work on their behalf for more than 30 years. He retired from Kent State University in 2008 after 25 years of service as a professor of special education. Throughout his career, James also worked as a part-time teacher of gifted middle school children. This weekly excursion into the real world of public school classrooms helped to cement both James’ professional credibility and his respect for the hectic lives of classroom teachers. His work’s practical application is a direct result of this weekly intervention into the world of schools. The author of more than 250 articles and 14 books, James' work has been translated into multiple languages, and has appeared in professional journals as well as The New York Times and on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
