    I read a few chapters before I had to return this book. My takeaways were that acceleration for gifted children (like skipping grades) is the cheapest and most effective way for public schools to provide services for gifted children. People often worry about accelerated children not being emotionally ready, but research on the subject shows that most accelerated children adjust well and feel happier when they are intellectually challenged.

The book used a metaphor of a bike ride with a lot of people of different skill levels. Naturally they will clump up in different groups, and it doesn't make anyone a better or less person. There was also a part about how taking gifted children out of the classroom for a while lets the other children shine more--something I had never considered. The content of the book was all over the place--chapters on what a gifted and talented curriculum should look like, how to teach creativity, and how to parent gifted children were among them. There was a subsection on the underachievement of gifted women, which made me think about how we measure "achievement." There are plenty of women who aren't working full-time that are still using their intellectual gifts in their hobbies or part-time jobs. But I also feel like I didn't put a lot of thought into my possible career because I thought I'd probably stay at home with my children (or I was an irresponsible young adult, one of those).

    This was the course handbook of my ECHA 1st module (theoretische inleiding) at Nijmegen. The course opened my eyes, broadened and deepened my view on giftedness. I only found it a pity that it was all American. Do we really have so little to show and tell about giftedness in Europe?

    This is a great comprehensive resource that I read in my first AIG certificate program. I especially liked the two chapters on creativity; however, it's definitely dry and not engaging. Moreover, it's offensive that I had the most recent version and it is not inclusive of genders other than male and female and does not discuss enough about sex versus gender.
