Overview

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.

Callard-Szulgit provides teachers with activities for children to pursue when they have finished assigned work or need some relief from tedium. Many of these activities could also be organized at home by parents. Recommended.

    Thank YOU, Dr. Callard-Szulgit

    As a teacher, I understand only too well, the demands and back breaking tasks of teaching in an inclusion classroom. When will we ever learn that what works for the gifted, works for all, and train/help teachers accordingly? Thank you, Rosemary, for understanding and helping us. Finally we're starting to get it right!
