"Drs. Susannah Wood and Jean Peterson have combined forces to move the field of school counseling forward in its work on behalf of gifted students… This subtle regularizing into appropriate school counseling practice is actually quite radical as is makes it clear that the time has passed to consider whether we should be concerned with the nature and needs of students with gifts and talents, but rather need to move to serving them as a requirement of our profession... And fortunately for all of us, the authors provide a clearly articulated roadmap for helping us live up to our professional responsibilities." --Tracy L. Cross, Ph.D. Created to fill a gap in both counselor education and gifted education, this is the only up-to-date text to provide a concise and practical overview of counseling services designed specifically for gifted and talented students. Grounded in the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model for counseling programs, the book illuminates specific knowledge, awareness, and skills school counselors need to address concerns related not only to academics, but also to social and emotional development of this population. The text delivers a theoretical and practical overview of gifted and talented education in the United States and the responsibilities of school counselors as they pertain to this unique population. Going well beyond the common call to provide academic challenge, the book considers special characteristics of gifted and talented students as it examines the complexities of career development, college readiness, and concerns related to social and emotional development. It discusses how counselors can advocate for gifted students, lead efforts to match programming and needs, and collaborate with school staff and families. Vignettes depicting critical incidents and epitomizing needs are used to illuminate differentiated counseling approaches that support this student population. Each chapter highlights a key concept, and curriculum guidelines and resources for professional development support the text. KEY FEATURES: Interweaves school counseling and gifted education research and practice Considers characteristics and counseling concerns associated with giftedness Is based on the ASCA model for counseling programs Examines the complexities of career development, college readiness, and social/emotional development in this population Highlights key concepts and includes vignettes of critical incidents

This book and video are based on a symposium of leaders in the fields of gifted education and middle-level education, which was held to identify and explore areas of agreement in often contrasting philosophies. Emphasis is on identifying areas of agreement between the fields, areas of tension, and promising directions that could engage educators in mutual planning of appropriate services for all middle-school students. The book includes the following papers: (1) "The Middle School: Mimicking the Success Routes of the Information Age" (Thomas O. Erb) which reviews the historical issues surrounding gifted education and middle-level education; (2) "Middle Schools and Their Impact on Talent Development" (Mary Ruth Coleman and James J. Gallagher) which describes two studies, one which compared attitudes of middle school and gifted educators and the other which looked at current best practices; (3) "Gifted Learners and the Middle School: Problem or Promise?" (Carol Ann Tomlinson) which outlines areas of tension between the two fields and suggests areas where leaders might collaborate; (4) "Differentiating Instruction for Advanced Learners in the Mixed-Ability Middle School Classroom" (Carol Ann Tomlinson) which provides specific suggestions for differentiating curriculum; and (5) "Instructional and Management Strategies for Differentiated, Mixed-Ability Classrooms" (Carol Ann Tomlinson) which provides a matrix of instructional strategies. Appendices include a list of symposium participants and the video script. The video presents views of symposium participants and gifted students on these issues and demonstrates students' needs for both integrated and separate learning experiences. (Contains a bibliography of 18 items.) (CR)
