Proven Strategies That Really Work for Teaching Gifted and Advanced Learners is a good workbook for TEACHERS to use, not only with advance learners, but I also feel some strategies will be great with standard students. With standard students, some strategies and worksheets will be great to improve or help them advance. Not all students can accelerate beyond their potential, but one of the more important jobs/goals of a teacher is to be able to spot and assess each students' potential in whatever subject area, be it common subjects as math and reading, versus life applications as comprehension. This book is a great tool for teachers to assess and implement strategies to help each student. I would not rely solely on this book, but it can act as a guide to help students accelerate at their pace. This specific book is for Grades 3-8, which I find a vast range.
I give it 4 stars because I like the synopsis and the strategy targets. I also think this is a great book for a parent to review and choose certain strategies, if they feel their child is not reaching their potential at school. With this, parents will be able to assess if their child needs more stimulation for advancement in a particular area.
Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.
