Key features
  • THE biggest names in gifted education - from Tomlinson, Renzulli, Sternberg and Reis to Gallagher, Callahan, Johnsen, Van Tassel-Baska, Wiggins, Treffinger, and more.
  • Co-publication with NAGC.
  • The authors writing introductions for each section review the major themes and ideas of each section, discuss contemporary issues in that area, and project future trends.
  • Each article begins with an overview of the material to be presented, presents research, and discusses how readers can put the research to use. The why, the what, and the what now are thoroughly covered.
  • Material contains tables, charts, and bulleted lists.
  • As a single volume, the book is potentially the best desk reference book on the topic. Its closest competitor, The International Handbook of Giftedness and Talent, is too international (24 nations) to be palatable to American schools and libraries - though that did not prevent it from warranting a second edition, which won the Choice "Outstanding Title" Award in 2002 for its contributions to the field.
  • As separate books, the material will be more accessible to teachers, administrators and professors who are interested in specific topics for their own educational, research, and site-based decision-making needs.
