June 2012 Book Giveaway: “Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners” by Cindy West

This month marks a first here at RedWhiteandGrew.com–it’s the first time that I’ve given away a homeschool-themed book!

June’s featured giveaway is Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners (Prufrock Press by Cindy West.

From the publisher’s website, here’s the scoop on the book:

The prospect of homeschooling gifted and advanced learners isn’t daunting anymore! Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners gives parents all of the support and confidence they need to bring their children home to a school that meets every one of their academic, emotional, and social needs.

Written by a veteran homeschooler, this book clearly and concisely teaches parents how to homeschool their advanced learners, focusing on special considerations that often go along with gifted children such as providing challenging curriculum, offering outlets for artistic and creative talents, accelerating students into college courses early, and finding them true intellectual peers. Homeschooling Gifted and Advanced Learners covers everything from curriculum choices and learning styles, to integrating technology and online courses, to finding social support for both children and parents. From making the decision to homeschool to planning for the transition to college, the answers parents of gifted homeschooled students need to help their children succeed are in this book!
