Gifted and accelerated readers are often not a part of reading instruction in a traditional or inclusive classroom. Their needs go unattended in favor of those who struggle with basic reading and foundational skills. All children should have the opportunity to grow in their knowledge and skills in literacy. This book provides teachers who have one or more gifted/accelerated or those who are "keenly interested" students in their class ways in which they can differentiate reading instruction that is equitable. Literacy Strategies for Gifted and Accelerated Readers provides educators with practical, research-based strategies and advice to address the unique needs of gifted readers. Attention to required specially designed instruction that aligns to both the content standards and the NAGC PreK-12 Gifted Programming Standards ensures that gifted readers make progress through literacy instruction. This book provides insight and expertise to general education teachers, teachers of the gifted, special education teachers, homeschool educators, professional developers, and higher education faculty.

In a world filled with books promoting "learning to read" strategies, Dr. Caruana writes the ultimate guide for teachers of gifted students who are "reading to learn." From the engaging classroom scenarios at the start of each chapter, to the useful teaching strategies and in-depth expertise of notable guest authors, this is a must-have book for any teacher of gifted readers!--Nancy Heilbronner, author, "10 Things Not to Say to Your Gifted Child"
Literacy is fundamental to all school content areas and is at the core of the pursuit for excellence in the Common Core Learning Standards, as well as College and Career readiness. Yet, rarely is attention given to students who are already advanced in literacy and have mastered the foundational skills in reading fluency, comprehension, and meaningful understanding. Literacy Strategies for Gifted and Accelerated Readers, by Dr. Vicki Caruana, includes specifically designed strategies, supported by research and relevant experts, on developing literacy learning outcomes and employing differentiated pedagogical approaches for gifted and accelerated readers in order to foster their intellectual, social-emotional experiences and demonstrate student growth.--Elissa F. Brown, Director, Hunter College-CUNY Center for Gifted Education
In today's quest for providing an equitable education and access to programming that advances all learners, it is critical to consider the needs of our most advanced students. In this timely book, Dr. Caruana provides teachers with practical strategies for developing our most proficient readers. Concrete, real-life examples and guidance are provided to create meaningful opportunities for continued cognitive development in reading, ensuring equity in every classroom.--Erika K. Kersey, NBCT, Gifted Specialist, and parent of gifted readers
Teachers looking for specific advice on who the gifted reader is, what differentiates the gifted reader from other students in their classes, and how to respond to those readers will find Literacy Strategies for Gifted and Accelerated Readers by Vicki Caruana a welcome and useful resource. Dr. Caruana provides strong and vivid examples of students who are gifted readers and offers her synthesis of the field backed by the very useful commentary of such experts as Dr. Sally Reis and Dr. Bob Seney. Each chapter offers useful suggestions for modifying reading curriculum and instruction and valuable probes to stimulate further reflection on responding to gifted readers.--Carolyn Callahan, Commonwealth Professor, University of Virginia, and editor of "Fundamentals of Gifted Education"
