- DescriptionNew material in this text takes into account all the changes in practice in the past 8-9 years, such as collaboration with the special education community to ensure that students with disabilities have access to gifted education services, a focus on diversity, the efforts schools should be making to ensure that underrepresented student populations are screened for gifted education, and how techlogy has increased opportunities for gifted students, especially in rural communities. The whole book describes a change in focus based on the revised gifted programming standards, which are longer written as inputs ( do XYZ in the area of curriculum planning ) but are w written to be student-outcome oriented ( students need to be able to do ABC ).
