Effective teaching for gifted and talented students is high on the agenda of school systems across the world. Written by leading international scholars in the field, Effective Teaching in Gifted Education presents a thoroughly enlightening analysis of the practice of schools judged to be outstanding in their effective teaching of gifted and talented students. Eight in-depth case studies draw upon the voices of school leaders, classroom teachers and students to illustrate and explore Gifted and Talented provision across a range of educational settings and circumstances, including: differentiated teaching and learning in an urban City Technology College gifted education in an inner-city, multi-ethnic school and a rural comprehensive school school ethos, student voice and motivation in a girls' grammar school curricular depth, enrichment and interactive teaching in a boys' grammar school learning in a residential summer school for gifted students. Providing a rich evidence base, these and other examples place best practice within a framework of theory and policy. School leaders, Gifted and Talented Co-ordinators and classroom practitioners reading this book will understand the principles behind the practice, as well as how and why to apply the practice in their own schools. This distinctive book will also be immensely useful to all those involved with Gifted and Talented education programmes and schemes and those following Continuing Professional Development and school leadership programmes, as well as NQTs, M-level students and researchers in education.

A unique feature of Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom is its Chinese context for meeting the educational requirements of children with special needs. At a time when many of the currently available texts in the area have a general perspective, Asian teachers and students have long felt the need for a text that specifically recognizes the local context. Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom notes that international trends, including those in many Southeast Asian countries are moving toward inclusive education and special needs, and includes chapters on giftedness, counseling and behavior management. Section 1 of the book describes the context of inclusive education in Asia. Summaries of the special features of the classroom in the region, the conceptions of inclusion and cultural diversity from the perspective of the Asian classroom, and how these are different to the Western classroom are provided. Section 2 focuses on various approaches to meeting the educational and socio-emotional needs of children in the inclusive classroom. The first part is concerned with theoretical underpinnings of the type of need, and the second part describes examples of how a teacher can cater for this type of diversity according to subject, including mathematics, Chinese, English, information technology, and arts. Section 3 widens the perspective and describes a whole-school approach to meeting the educational requirements of children with special needs. A systems approach is taken, whereby the success of the inclusive school is dependent on the functioning of a number of interrelated parts. This section draws from recent case studies which describe the approaches taken by a number of schools that have been successful in implementing inclusive education. Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom will appeal to teachers, parents, health professionals who are working with children with special educational needs.
