Teaching Models in Education of the Gifted. Third Edition
Maker, C. June; Schiever, Shirley W.
This book comprehensively reviews teaching-learning models that can be used in the development and implementation of a curriculum for gifted students. The second edition reflects the many changes that have occurred in gifted education. The field of gifted education has seen new program models developed, more research accomplished, and new materials published. This third edition examines these changes. "Teaching Models in Education of the Gifted" supplies valuable information to teachers, prospective teachers, program coordinators, and curriculum development specialists. It will enable them to: (1) assess critically the match of the assumptions in a model with their own philosophies: (2) evaluate the validity of a model for the purpose for which they intend to employ it: (3) apply the model appropriately in any situation: and most important: (4) implement the model with gifted students. Because of its focus on implementations, the book provides many examples of the use of different models with gifted students of various ages. (For the second edition of "Teaching Models in Education of the Gifted," see ED385016.)
