Designing Gifted Education Programs and Services: From Purpose to Implementation Scott Peters, Dina Brulles

This book is intended to support educators in the design and implementation of comprehensive gifted education plans. The authors begin with a broad overview of best practices in programming and services, highlighting connections to student needs, programming standards and state laws. Their recommendations include philosophical, cultural, and practical considerations and data-based decision making. 

In this book, Peters and Brulles guide the reader through the process of determining the most optimal programming methods for schools to take based on their individual needs and circumstances. With this book, schools will be able to design and develop programs and/or services that lay the foundation necessary to ensure all students are appropriately challenged.
