Handbook for Advocacy of Gifted Education.
Dubner, Frances S.
The handbook offers strategies for being a successful advocate for appropriate gifted education. Each of six sections focuses on a specific strategy. These include: championing the cause by being knowledgeable and refuting myths; aiding in identification by knowing characteristics of the gifted and placement criteria, surveying local programs to determine what services are provided and what is lacking; offering support to programs through participation, contributions, and by organizing and lobbying; publicizing student achievements through media exposure; and evaluating the local effort in view of other programs. A final section offers notable quotes intended to inspire the advocate. (SW)
