This is a comprehensive examination of the state of the knowledge base for the education and upbringing of gifted youth. It views the education of the gifted from the perspective of the practitioner, as it reviews and critiques recommended practices (many of which are in use in the schools) from well over 100 sources. Shore and his colleagues provide a cogent basis for effectively examining current practices in gifted education and for detailing current gaps in gifted education research. Intended for gifted education program planners, district level co-ordinators, administrators, pre- and in-service teachers and trainers, this text should be a needed reference for all gifted education professionals.
