Re-Forming Gifted Education
Parents of gifted children need to present schools with educational plans. Current educational programs for gifted students are generally inadequate and do not fit the particular gifted child. Rogers explains various programs for acceleration and enrichment, as well as grouping practices. For each educational option, she delineates what the current research says about the benefit or lack of benefit to which types of gifted children and explains how to arrange each option. This book is a real eye-opener for educators and parents unfamiliar with the full body of research in the field of curriculum for gifted education. ? Types of giftedness ? Types of enrichment ?
