Educating Your Gifted Students

Chances are, you've got gifted students in your class. These students show the capacity for high achievement, and as their teacher, it's your job to help them reach their potential. To help you do this, there are numerous publications that explore the education of gifted students. The following publications focus on research and trends in the field of gifted education.

Journal for the Education of the Gifted

This journal is focused on publishing research on the experience and education of gifted students. There are several case studies on individual gifted students and their experiences in school. Many of the studies take into account factors like race, gender and socioeconomic class. This perspective gives teachers a fuller picture of how they might serve students. The journal also focuses on the psychological needs of gifted students, with an added focus on counseling. Many of the studies in this journal explore the needs of gifted students with learning disabilities. As a teacher, you can use the research studies presented to remain aware of the potential experiences of your students.

Parenting for High Potential

Geared primarily toward parents, this journal focuses on raising and advocating for gifted children. The journal gives parents ideas for how to challenge and support their child's learning and development. This may come in the form of articles written by other parents or information coming from educators or psychologists. The journal contains advice and resources that parents may find useful. As a teacher, you will find helpful resources that you can incorporate into your classroom. It is also helpful to know the trends and resources for parenting gifted children, since you may find yourself supporting your students' parents as well.
