Description & Coverage
Description:

Much of the research about teachers focuses on “those who can’t/don’t/aren’t good” in the classroom. However, teachers who are gifted and talented exist, but there has been little attention to date on the characteristics and practices of such teachers in the classroom. While few, the examples of research on positive teacher attributes include work on the “expert,” “authentic,” and “creative,” as well as examples of research on eminent adults.

Identifying, Describing, and Developing Teachers Who Are Gifted and Talented is an essential reference source that discusses behaviors and traits in teachers who are considered gifted and talented as well as case studies on the identification and preparation of teachers who fall into this category. Featuring research on topics such as creative innovation, emotional intelligence, and skill development, this book is ideally designed for educators, administrators, researchers, and academicians.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Administrative Perspectives
  • Creative Innovation
  • Curriculum Design
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Immigrant Teachers
  • Postsecondary Education
  • Skill Development
  • Student Interaction
