Teacher preparation programs may not adequately train teachers in how to meet the needs of gifted and talented students in the regular classroom. Several states offer additional teacher preparation programs by providing either an endorsement or certification in the field, but these are often pursued by teachers specifically enrolled in gifted coursework rather than in general education programs. Practitioners and researchers agree that time and energy should be spent on training teachers in how to address the needs of gifted and talented students, both within the regular classroom and in specialized programs. This three-book series acknowledges this need and provides specific strategies for professional development in a variety of settings using various methods. Drawing on both literature in the field and research-based best practices in professional learning, this series provides the reader with a foundation for designing and implementing effective professional development experiences for educators working with gifted learners. An Introduction to Professional Learning Strategies focuses on a variety of techniques and methods in professional development. From reflection practices to using case studies to incorporating technology, authors provide specific tools and resources to consider when delivering effective professional development related to this specific population of learners.
