Description of this Book
Effective teaching of gifted and talented students is high on the agenda of school systems across the world. Effective Teaching in Gifted Education thoroughly and engagingly explores the day to day practice of schools judged to be outstandingly effective at teaching such students. Eight in-depth case studies provide a rich evidence base for school leaders and classroom practitioners to understand and apply the lessons to their own schools. A key characteristic of the case studies is that effective teaching and learning is not restricted to classroom techniques, important though these are, but depends upon school-wide values and ethos. The case studies draw upon the voices of school leaders, classroom teachers and students to illustrate the arguments. This distinctive book is written by leading scholars, who have been actively involved in the field work and have negotiated the case studies with the participating schools.
