Serving Gifted Students in Rural Settings provides a framework for educating the gifted in rural settings. Case study vignettes and practical ideas for administrators and teachers are combined with theoretical applications.

The second section focuses on practical strategies and evidence-supported approaches for identifying and serving rural gifted students based on their unique geography. Section three highlights support structures that are necessary for leading and supporting gifted education in rural schools. This book helps bridge the gap existing between rural education and accessible, effective gifted education.
