Book Title: Engaging & Challenging Gifted Students: Tips for Supporting Extraordinary Minds in Your Classroom (ASCD Arias)
Author: Jenny Grant Rankin
Though nearly 5 million students can be characterized as gifted and talented in the United States, many exceptional learners "fly under the radar." Because they are not appropriately challenged in the general classroom, they never meet their full potential in school or in life.
Author Jenny Grant Rankin equips general classroom teachers with the information and strategies they need to spot, advocate for, engage, and challenge exceptional learners in their classrooms.
Learn how to
- recognize the challenges of each child,
- identify the five unexpected traits of exceptional learners, and
- adjust your teaching to meet the needs of all learners.
Filled with useful strategies and poignant personal accounts, this book gives you the "meat" of what you need to prevent those students who need to be challenged and engaged from slipping through the cracks.
