In this fascinating book, Ellen Winner uncovers and explores nine myths about giftedness, and shows us what gifted children are really like.Using vivid case studies, Winner paints a complex picture of the gifted child. Here we meet David, a three-year-old who learned to read in two weeks KyLee, a five-year-old who mastered on his own all of the math concepts expected by the end of elementary school and Nadia, an autistic and retarded savant" who nevertheless could draw like a Renaissance master.Winner uses her research with these and several other extraordinary children, as well as the latest biological and psychological evidence, to debunk the many myths about academic, musical, and artistic giftedness. Gifted Children also looks at the role played by schools in fostering exceptional abilities. Winner castigates schools for wasting resources on weak educational programs for the moderately gifted. Instead, she advocates elevating standards for all children, and focusing our resources for gifted education on those with extreme abilities,children who are left untouched by the kinds of minimal programs we have today.

Språkligt var boken var lätt att förstå och trevlig att läsa. Jag föredrar j... Läs hela recensionen
