This book helps teachers plan a challenging programme for students, particularly gifted students, within a regular education classroom. It addresses brain-compatible learning, which makes it appropriate for a much wider group of students than just the very brightest. Approaches and strategies are explained in a unique and personal style and include the following: use of inter-disciplinary themes, analytical thinking exercises, teaching moral dilemmas, Socratic questioning techniques, increasing depth and complexity through interactive games, activities to promote creative thinking, using graphic organizers, and teaching research skills and methods. The author demonstrates how all these strategies and approaches work together to help teachers create a more meaningful learning experience for all students. An added benefit of the author's training, as reflected in this book, is to help put the creativity and search for knowledge back into the learning process.

"The author provides a wide range of strategies that will increase the depth and complexity of learning for every child. It will be a must-read for every educator looking to increase the rigor of his or her learning expectations." -- Kathy Tritz-Rhodes, Principal
"This is an instant gratification, pick-up-and-use-immediately, teacher-friendly book. I got so excited about the strategies that I immediately began to use some of them in my classroom." -- Mary Beth Cary, Teacher of the Gifted
"John's wealth of knowledge and humor make his trainings exciting. Our teachers leave his workshops with hands-on techniques to make differentiation for their GATE students more challenging and meaningful." -- Mary O'Rourke, GATE Coordinator
"I truly value the skills and insights I came away with from this work. Thanks to DeLandtsheer, I now believe I can teach, and think, outside the box." -- Katherine Kingsley, 2nd Grade Teacher
"Excellent instruction in teaching and understanding GATE students. I look forward to trying my new skills." -- Linda Laymon, 3rd Grade Teacher
