Discover how to identify and fully engage your gifted and talented students. Though nearly 5 million students qualify for gifted and talented education (GATE) 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 classroom teachers with information and strategies 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.
- Adjust your teaching to meet the needs of all learners.
Filled with useful strategies and poignant personal accounts, this book gives you the fundamentals you need to identify students who need to be challenged and engaged before they slip through the cracks.
