Overview

High-quality teaching and learning in science is vital to our economic future and to our ability to perform effectively as citizens in a democratic society, but all too often science education in schools is not as strong as it might be. Science Strategies for Students With Gifts and Talents examines some common pitfalls in how we teach science in school and then suggests ways teachers can improve their practice in this area. Specific sections cover elementary, middle, and high school science instruction, with a focus on how teachers can be effective in meeting the needs of the academically advanced and high-ability learners in their classroom at each of these levels.
