With 150,000 copies in print, the original TEACHING GIFTED KIDS is a perennial best-seller. Teachers everywhere call it, "the orange Bible" and turn to it daily to make sure their gifted students are getting the learning opportunities they need and deserve. Since the first edition was published, author Susan Winebrenner has spent eight years using it with school districts, teachers, parents, and kids across the U.S. and the U.K. this revised, expanded, updated edition reflects her personal experiences and the changes that have taken place in education over the years. Her basic philosophy hasn't changed, and all of the proven, practical, classroom-tested strategies teachers love are still here. But there's now an entire chapter on identifying gifted students. The step-by-step how-tos for using the strategies are more detailed and user-friendly. There's a new chapter especially for parents. And all of the forms in the book are also on CD-ROM (sold separately) so you can print them out and customize them for your classroom. Since 1992, TEACHING GIFTED KIDS has been the definitive guide to meeting the learning needs of gifted students in the mixed-abilities classroomwithout losing control, causing resentment, or spending hours preparing extra materials. This new edition is even better.
