Support exceptionally bright children with strategies that challenge them to think with more complexity, depth, and creativity

Nearly every group of children includes at least one exceptionally bright child. From the especially creative child to the child who has already mastered learning outcomes to the “twice exceptional” child, exceptionally bright children have a wide range of talents and behaviors. This book will help you understand what it means to be exceptionally bright in preschool and prekindergarten and help you guide children to reach their full potential. It includes three broad strategies—differentiation, conversation, and connection—for creating rich and satisfying learning experiences that meet the needs of all children. Use these techniques to adapt your practices, challenge children to think more deeply, and create opportunities for children to learn from each other throughout your literacy, math, and science curricula. You will also learn assessment methods that can help you identify exceptionally bright children and techniques to support children's social-emotional development and strengthen your partnerships with families.

When exceptionally bright children are supported and challenged, they will be more confident about their abilities to think and learn. And they will go on to make creative contributions to their future classroom communities.

Age focus: 3—6. Softbound, 192 pgs.

Review by: Susan Corwith, AD of Northwestern University's Center for Talent Developmen - January 15, 2013
Gadzikowski's extensive knowledge of early childhood education, combined with her experience developing enrichment programs for exceptionally bright young learners, results in this must-have resource for educators. The book offers pedagogically sound and practical approaches that educators can adopt easily to have an immediate and substantial impact on students' development and engagement in learning.
