Reviews

Exceptionally well organized and presented, "What to Expect When You're Expected to Teach Gifted Students" by Kari Lockhart is especially recommended to the attention of classroom teachers who are new or inexperienced with respect to the education of gifted students K-12--and should be a core acquisition for school district, college, and university library Teacher Education & In-Service Training instructional reference collections.

,Midwest Book Review, 4/13/20
What to Expect When You're Expected to Teach Gifted Students proposes that gifted students should be the motivators for the design of the gifted program, rather than teachers simply defaulting to a standardized curriculum. Lockhart's insights and wide-ranging advice can give new teachers (and teachers who have limited experience with gifted students) the support we might need to take over a gifted program or better team with the gifted teachers in our school.,Kolby Wagner,MiddleWeb, 5/28/20
What to Expect When You're Expected to Teach Gifted Students is a must-read for any teacher who is stepping into the role of teaching gifted learners. Lockhart does not shy away from the fact that building a well-rounded program that meets the needs of all gifted learners can be a daunting task, but she encourages her read- ers to “eat the elephant one bite at a time” and provides plenty of support in doing so.,Sarah A.
