Gifted and talented students (What research says to the teacher)

Gifted And Talented Students - Frederick B. Tuttle Unfortunately, this was the most relevant book (really more of a pamphlet at 28 readable pages (plus 4 of references)) my library had on gifted/talented education--published in 1983. As outdated as it was, a lot of what Tuttle said is still applicable today, and reaffirms my drive to become a teacher of gifted students. A good starting point for anyone interested in gifted/talented education.
