REVIEW:
Hoagies' Gifted Education Page is a good source of information about gifted children. The site is oriented to parents needs, but there is much that teachers can gain from it. The extensive list of articles is first-rate and covers a wide range of important issues. The site offers other parents' success stories and answers frequently asked questions about gifted education. The Gifted Education Tools section has products for gifted children as well as a list of publishers and companies that offer enrichment materials. If all of this gets to be too much, check out The Lighter Side section for some humor on the subject. Teachers beware, you're not always painted in a very good light by parents. However, everyone will appreciate, "You Know You're The Parent of a Gifted Child When...". It's a long list of parents' experiences with gifted kids. This is an inspiring site that has much to offer.
