    Using the Schoolwide Enrichment Model in Mathematics: A How-to Guide for Developing Student Mathematicians applies the teaching and learning strategies of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) to the math classroom. Based on more than 40 years of research and development and used in schools around the world, the SEM approach focuses on promoting higher level thinking skills and creative productivity. Using this approach in mathematics, this new guidebook promotes the use of the Mathematical Practices outlined in the Common Core State Standards as the underlying processes and proficiencies that should be developed in students. Teachers learn how to create a culture of enjoyment, engagement, and enthusiasm for all students, and in particular gifted students, while developing students who think and act like mathematicians. Easy to read and use, the book incorporates many practical suggestions, including views from the classroom and sample activities from NAGC-award winning curriculum to motivate and challenge students.

    Joseph S. Renzulli, Ed.D., Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology and Director of the Renzulli Center for Creativity Gifted Education, and Talent Development, is an esteemed leader in gifted education whose contributions have had a profound impact on teachers and students. His work on the Three-Ring Conception of Giftedness, the Enrichment Triad Model, curriculum compacting, and the use of instructional technology to assess student strengths and match resources to students' electronic profiles were pioneering efforts to make the field more flexible and to place the focus on talent development. He has contributed hundreds of books, book chapters, articles, and monographs to the professional literature, many of which have been translated to other languages. The American Psychological Association named him among the 25 most influential psycholgists in the world, and he recently received the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Award for Innovation in Education, considered by many to be "the Nobel Prize" for educators.

    Recognizing and responding to the fact that technology is changing the educational landscape quickly and with a dramatic impact, Using the Schoolwide Enrichment Model With Technology is a solution-oriented book that offers guidance and ideas for educators as they seek to integrate technology into productive learning environments for their students.,Gifted Child Today, 9/17/17
    The authors recognize differences in teacher styles, interests and abilities. They also realize teachers are working within vastly different structures with many types of students. Even if the reader is not familiar with the Schoolwide Enrichment Model, this book could prove beneficial.,Michael Hernandez,MiddleWeb, 1/16/20
