Written with the educator, administrator, and program developer in mind, this book will positively transform the educational system for working with CLD student populations. Correlated with the updated NAGC standards, the book examines existing program structures through the lens of over- and underrepresentation of CLD students in gifted programs. The book also features a formula for auditing current programs for CLD representation and an innovative model for identifying these students for gifted services.

Though nearly 5 million students can be characterized as gifted and talented in the United States, many exceptional learners “fly under the radar.” Because they are not appropriately challenged in the general classroom, they never meet their full potential—in school or in life. Author Jenny Grant Rankin equips general classroom teachers with the information and strategies they need to spot, advocate for, engage, and challenge exceptional learners in their classrooms. Learn how to * recognize the challenges of each child, * identify the five unexpected traits of exceptional learners, and * adjust your teaching to meet the needs of all learners. Filled with useful strategies and poignant personal accounts, this book gives you the “meat” of what you need to prevent those students who need to be challenged and engaged from slipping through the cracks.

Talent Development for English Language Learners offers concrete guidance to teachers, schools, and administrators seeking to maximize the potential of all of their students. Each chapter will focus thematically on an issue relevant to developing the talents and potential of gifted English language learners (ELLs) in inclusive educational settings. Examples are provided of how schools or educators might conventionally conceptualize and handle the issues related to ELLs and what the concerns or unintended negative outcomes are for gifted ELLs. The authors focus on what an "ideal" response might be from the lens of both the gifted education and the language education field, and how collaborative efforts across these perspectives yield effective interventions in schools and related educational settings for students who are both English language learners and highly academically able.

The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself. Here is the story of a precarious childhood, with an alcoholic father (who would die when she was nine) and a devoted but overburdened mother, and of the refuge a little girl took from the turmoil at home with her passionately spirited paternal grandmother. But it was when she was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes that the precocious Sonia recognized she must ultimately depend on herself. She would learn to give herself the insulin shots she needed to survive and soon imagined a path to a different life. With only television characters for her professional role models, and little understanding of what was involved, she determined to become a lawyer, a dream that would sustain her on an unlikely course, from valedictorian of her high school class to the highest honors at Princeton, Yale Law School, the New York County District Attorney’s office, private practice, and appointment to the Federal District Court before the age of forty. Along the way we see how she was shaped by her invaluable mentors, a failed marriage, and the modern version of extended family she has created from cherished friends and their children. Through her still-astonished eyes, America’s infinite possibilities are envisioned anew in this warm and honest book, destined to become a classic of self-invention and self-discovery.
