Description

By Rosemary S. Callard-Szulgit.

"This book is jam-packed with successful, field-tested activities that have both excited and worked for children at all education levels. This book offers educators and parents the best of all worlds - educational activities and competitions not just for the gifted child, but for all children."--Book jacket.

As our educational system extends its resources and efforts to help make schools and classrooms more accessible to handicapped and special education students, teachers are finding themselves overwhelmed with increased demands, overcrowding, and lack of adequate training in managing all the necessary demands of an inclusion classroom. Inadvertently, instructional time and resources are often taken away from our gifted children. Jam-packed with very successful ideas and activities that the author has used in her 37 years of teaching gifted students, this resource guide contains field-tested activities that have excited and worked for all educational levels. It offers educators and parents the best of all worlds, containing educational activities and competitions not just for the gifted child, but for all children.

Dr. Callard-Szulgit has a staff development consulting business, Partners for Excellence (www.partners-for-excellence.com), in Rochester, NY and Phoenix, AZ. She is the former facilitator for Gifted and Talented, K-8, in the Webster Central School District, a suburb of Rochester, NY and she continues to have articles published dealing with the education of gifted children.
