As a former high school English educator and GATE program coordinator, I wish I had had this helpful book to help me better understand the needs of gifted students and employ effective teaching strategies.

As the mother of four gifted children, I also recommend this for parents--to help them understand their children's intellectual needs and capacities and to give them ...more

This book offers simple, clear, and effective methods and idea to help teachers and parents ensure their highest readers make growth in reading at any level. In a time where classroom teaches have increasing demands to reach all kids it is often the most advanced who make the least progress. Literacy Strategies for Gifted and Advanced Readers gives teachers ways to remedy this and ensure equity in reading growth for all students!
