||Education of the Gifted and Talented (6th Edition)
||Davis, G., Rimm, S. & Siegle, D.
||0135056071 & 978-0135056073
||Written by Gary A. Davis and Sylvia B. Rimm, this book is a standard introductory text in gifted education. The sixth edition has been thoroughly revised, most notably with the latest research on acceleration, curriculum models, underachievement, culturally and economically disadvantaged students, gender issues, and dual exceptionalities. The content is further supported and enhanced by the inclusion of numerous practical strategies that can be implemented in the classroom, case studies that help teachers identify student needs, summaries of research on effective programs, emphasis on pedagogy and on social-emotional needs, heightened awareness of less visible sub-groups within gifted populations, and an amusing, witty writing style that adds to the appeal of this best-selling book.
