Identify, understand, and engage the full range of gifted learners with practical, brain-compatible classroom strategies!

What does it mean to be gifted and talented? The second edition of David Sousa′s best-selling How the Gifted Brain Learns helps bring clarity to this topic, leveraging the latest neuroscientific findings to separate fact from fiction and provide teachers with practical strategies for engaging artistically and intellectually advanced learners.

This reader-friendly guide gives elementary and secondary teachers the help they need to not only recognize and challenge their gifted learners, but also to support gifted students who underachieve. Acknowledging that students are often gifted in specific subject areas, the text includes chapters dedicated to talents in language, math, and the arts. Special "From the Desk of a Teacher" sections offer classroom-tested examples of the instructional applications suggested by research. In addition to featuring new research and expanded curriculum ideas, this second edition helps answer questions about:

  • How the brains of gifted students are different
  • How to gauge if gifted students are being adequately challenged
  • How to identify students who are both gifted and learning disabled
  • How improving programs for the gifted and talented benefits other students
  • How to better identify gifted minority students, who are often underrepresented in gifted programs

This resource is a one-stop shop of brain-compatible strategies for teaching the full range of gifted students!
