Grow talent, don't mine it
Welcome to the academic conversation!
When learning is child's play
Every child's right : academic talent development in all communities and classrooms
Changing college-going from chance to choice
The gift of community and the community of gifts.
No child should have to be identified as "gifted" in order to benefit from a rich, challenging learning experience. This book tells the story of the Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) at UC Berkeley, an example of a long-standing, self-supporting summer program that shifted from "mining" to "growing" talent. The authors provide an insider's view of the teachers, students, curriculum, and school culture as a model for creating academic enrichments programs in and out of school. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
