Using ideas that have been tried and tested in the classroom, this book takes a whole school approach to educating gifted and talented pupils in mixed-ability schools. Packed with practical ideas for lessons and containing plenty of case studies that show what can be achieved, this book also provides advice on:

  • definitions of gifted and talented;
  • how to identify gifted and talented pupils;
  • identifying and resolving underachievement;
  • support strategies for gifted and talented pupils (in schools and in LEAs);
  • different teaching and learning styles;
  • devising a tailored curriculum to meet the needs of individual able pupils.

Gifted and Talented Co-ordinators, class teachers and Learning Support Teachers looking for a whole-school approach to helping able pupils thrive within their setting will find this book invaluable.
