This book provides concise, research-based advice to educators, administrators, and parents of gifted and talented pupils. It outlines over 20 practices based on extensive examination of educational research about what works to best support talented pupils.

The authors covers how teachers can identify and develop a gifted pupil’s talents; how to use parents appropriately in the classroom; modelling social skills to help successfully manage peer relationships; differentiation of the curriculum to challenge gifted pupils; early entry, and acceleration; career education; developing productive mentorship programmes, as well as providing additional opportunities inside and outside school.

In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
