The SAGE Handbook of Gifted and Talented Education engages the reader in myriad topics that are up to date and thought provoking. It is a “must-have” resource for researchers, educators, and others interested in gifted education and talent development.
Unquestionably, this text is the richest, most robust scholarly investigation into the realm of gifted and talented in the last twenty years. Belle Wallace, Dorothy Sisk and John Senior have brought together the finest scholars and researchers in the field to compile a massive and masterful text that is both insightful and illuminating. The chapters are captivating, riveting and inspiring while at the same time written with passion and panache.
Not, perhaps, since publication of the 1st edition of the critically acclaimed International Handbook of Giftedness and Talent (ed. F.J. Monks et al) in 1993, has there been a more scholarly exposition of issues that provide comprehensive coverage of the present stage of knowledge within the field.
This is a truly remarkable book which brings together several of the world’s leading scholars on gifted and talent education, in order to provide a bridge to the front lines of a flourishing field. This Handbook is a must-read; not only for all those who seek orientation on the topic, but also for researchers who want a thorough overview of the latest developments. Highly recommended!
The new SAGE Handbook of Gifted and Talented Education is a forward-looking summary that fills a gap in gifted education and reflects to contemporary challenges. Its major strength lies in the perspective of cultural and developmental psychology, so instead of expansive and all-in statements it applies a relativistic, dynamic and international approach that makes space for individual differences and diversity.
The new Sage Handbook of Gifted and Talented Education provides the reader a considerable cross-section of thoughtful chapters on the education of students with gifts and talents. The handbook is chock full of many luminaries in the field of gifted education, as well as a group of great thinkers who often write in other fields. In addition, there are several chapters on the topic of creativity and gifted education. While it does focus on the educational aspects of gifted education, it offers insights and original ideas often lacking in these types of handbooks.
