ABOUT THE GIFTED EDUCATION REVIEW
Welcome to The Gifted Education Review. The purpose of The Gifted Education Review is to “bridge the gap between researchers and practitioners.” We select the most useful research for practitioners in the field of Gifted and Talented education and present it in an easily-digestible manner that summarizes the findings and addresses the practical implications in the classroom. In addition, we include articles with practical advice by practitioners on the frontline of Gifted and Talented education.
