Non-verbal ability does not readily show itself on standardised achievement testing or in schoolwork – especially after Year 1 when students are increasingly asked to show what they know in writing. Sometimes kids who seem pretty typical surprise us with an insight, suddenly performing a task beyond their years or simply seem to know without being able to explain how they know. These are the kids who are often left out of gifted programs in school yet they offer the sort of 21st century skills that will make our world a better place. This book is addressed to all those parents who wonder about their child's flashes of brilliance but cannot quite lay a finger on a particular gift, and the teachers who see the same gleam in a student's eyes.

Gifted students have the potential to learn material earlier and faster, to handle more complexity and abstraction, and to solve complex problems better. But this potential needs stimulating experiences from home and school or it will not unfold.

The English book includes units that ask students to develop strong personalities for their main characters while writing mysteries, study Freud's psychoanalytic theory and then analyse a classic novel using what they've learned, focus on writing from a specific point of view and increase their appreciation for poetry.

For the young child, art is a way of solving problems, conceptualising the world and creating new possibilities. This book is about young children engaging in the art of world-making. Art, not in the traditional sense, but rather as constituting a powerful tool of everyday thinking. Everyday Artists addresses the disconnect that exists between the teaching of art and the way young children actually experience art. In doing so, this book questions commonly held notions and opens up exciting new possibilities for art education in the early childhood classroom. Bentley uses vignettes of children's everyday activities – from block building to clean-up to outdoor play – to help teachers identify and scaffold the genuine artistic practice of young children.

Creative thinking is something that should be infused into every existing subject area at all year levels, but how do we teach it? SCAMPER, according to its creator Bob Eberle, is an engaging introduction to creative thinking. SCAMPER is an acronym, each letter referring to a different verb. These verbs are techniques to use to encourage creative thinking. When thinkers guide their thoughts using a certain technique they achieve a new outcome and/or idea. Creative thinking is integrated into every learning area of the Australian Curriculum including the F–10 and the Senior Secondary curricula. The activities in SCAMPER Revisited are designed to push students to their creative limits, and help to lay the foundations for continued creative thinking throughout their schooling.
