The four concepts discussed in this section are covered in-depth in our Certificate of Effective Practice in Gifted Education, both the relevant research and associated practical strategies, and in our teachers’ manual, They’re Not Bringing My Brain Out.

Conceptual understanding is explained more fully in our second manual, Differentiation Made Practical, with diverse examples using the Multi-Dimensional Model.

Strategies used in all these models are effective with gifted learners at both primary and high school levels.
