Editors Davis and Douglas have organized a valuable research-based collection of articles by field-based practitioners of gifted education, writes teacher Erin Corrigan-Smith. A major focus: instructional methods that address the under-representation of minority and twice-exceptional students.

The unique design of STEM lessons allows students, regardless of ability, access to real-life learning experiences. Giving students with special needs authentic STEM experiences can help them get ready for a future where all types of people live, work and solve together.
Through skill-sharing, collaboration & scaffolding, general & special educators can help most students meet CCSS, says Elizabeth Stein.
