Synopses & Reviews
Book with CD-Rom
With 150,000 copies in print, the original Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom 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.
“A comprehensive manual with excellent strategies and encouragement. Tell your child’s teacher about this book.” —National Association for Gifted Children
"This book should be required reading for all teachers before they set foot in the classroom." —The Gifted Education Association of Reading, Pennsylvania
"Almost from the day it was published, Susan Winebrenner’s book has become a classic in the field. Moreover, it transcends the relatively small field of gifted child education and has become popular in professional teacher libraries everywhere."—Gifted Education Communicator
