Description: Written by Felicia A. Dixon, Ph.D., this book is designed to be a reference for service and program options for practitioners, administrators, and coordinators of gifted education programs. As such, it is a companion to the lengthier and more in-depth The Handbook of Secondary Gifted Education. The first part focuses on the gifted adolescent, including suggestions for academic, personal/social, and career exploration best practices. The second part explicates programmatic offerings available for gifted secondary students, such as AP and IB programming, distance learning, magnet and other special schools, study abroad, and early entrance to college options. The final section moves the discussion from “what is” to “what could be” for high-ability adolescents.
