In this book, the authors examine the extent to which a truly inclusive context can provide a challenging environment for gifted and talented pupils. Key issues explored include: the social and emotional aspects of being a gifted and talented pupil the pros and cons of being labelled gifted and talented in very young children why 'regular' classrooms are the best place to educate gifted and talented pupils modifying the basic school curriculum to meet the needs of gifted and talented pupils What is submerged talent and how can it be found?

What is it like to be YOUNG, GIFTED AND WORKING CLASS in contemporary England? How do working class family values support high educational achievement? What do researchers and policy makers have to learn about giftedness from working class families? These provocative questions are explored in this ground-breaking book. Most studies of giftedness focus on the characteristics of individuals, and draw upon psychological frameworks to understand them. Participants in most gifted education programmes are recruited disproportionately from the higher social classes. Sceptical of the concept of giftedness, Mazzoli Smith and Campbell question conventional methodologies, using a narrative approach to understand how four families of working class origins, each with a gifted child, construct their values in relation to education and social class. They explore the influence of their family histories, cultural values and life styles upon educational engagement and achievement. The authors show that gifted education policies are poorly matched to the values of these families and argue that much research into giftedness has been flawed by social and cultural discrimination. They propose an agenda for change in research paradigms in the giftedness field, which should be characterized by interdisciplinarity and more culturally relative conceptions of giftedness.

The author offers this perspective while simultaneously challenging pre-service and in-service teachers with a relatively new way of thinking about teaching: universal design in education. A thorough discussion of the foundations of inclusion and of the law at the beginning of the text is followed by specific disability chapters, methods chapters, and content area chapters. Each of the chapters (except for the foundational chapters in Part I) contain practical strategies and methods for the preservice teacher in all age groups.

While teachers teachers may recognise the necessity of providing challenging educational activities for bright students, the many pressing demands of the classroom make the management of such activities difficult. As the same time, concerns about accountability and the mastery of basic skills make teachers understandably hesitant to allow even the most able students to omit normally required material. One management technique that has been developed to implement curricular change for bright students while assuring mastery of basic skills is a curriculum compacting. This book will describe the successful techniques developed by classroom teachers implementing curriculum compacting at a variety of grade levels.
