Why Give "Gifts" to the Gifted?
Investing in a National Resource


Other Titles in:
Physical Impairments

March 1994 | 160 pages | Corwin

This provocative book focuses on the needs of gifted students. Schwartz presents compelling evidence that the gifts of time and money in providing educational opportunities to gifted individuals are neither elitist or undemocratic as critics charge. Small initial commitment will yield exceptional future leaders. Everyone will benefit from the rich return on such an investment. She describes the types of giftedness and gives nine categories of options available for enhancing the educational experiences of gifted students and how these options can be modified to meet individual needs. Some of these options cost virtually nothing while others fly in the face of current practices.

This book will be indispensable for educational policy makers, teachers and students.
