When classrooms were one-room schoolhouses, gifted learners could not be prevented from learning what was being taught to other students. The one-room school concept catered to the dual nature of gifted learners their mental age and ability level are several (or many) years older than their chronological age. Today, the same enrichment and acceleration possibilities of the one-room school have to be accomplished in more complex administrative and instructional ways. The strategies in this book provide ways for returning to the open-ended and non-graded opportunities of the one-room school concept for gifted learners, in spite of today s chronologically based organizational pattern. Gifted Learners K-12: A Practical Guide to Effective Curriculum and Teaching identifies ways to enhance the program offerings by the regular classroom teacher for students recognized as gifted learners. This second edition includes practical and creative strategies to help readers engage and challenge their gifted students. The approaches are easy to implement and modify, appropriate for a variety of ages and content areas, and designed to enhance students creative and critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and independent learning skills.
