The field of gifted education is characterized by a confusing array of perspectives concerning such fundamental issues as definition, philosophy, curriculum, social and emotional development, and underserved populations. The mission of this book is to provide a coherent framework that instructors and service providers can use in planning effective programs, providing appropriate counseling services, and evaluating programs for the gifted. Most sections are organized around fundamental issues confronting the field and follow a common structure: an introductory chapter that provides historical and theoretical background and organizing questions followed by several point-of-view chapters written by experts that provide varied perspectives on the topic at hand. Distinguishing Features Comprehensive Coverage – The book's forty-five manageable-length chapters cover the full range of topics that must be considered in planning programs and services for gifted students both within and outside of school. Coherent Structure – Section introductions provide background information and organizing questions to guide chapter authors who provide varying views of the issue at hand. The emphasis is not on the "right way" or the "wrong way" (except when clearly documented bad practice is discussed), but on how best practice stems from well-informed and logical decision-making. Decision Making Focus – The book's introductory chapter addresses the need for a clearly developed and consistently applied set of values to guide decision making. Likewise, each section introduction includes a decision making framework regarding some aspect of educating, counseling, or parenting gifted students. This book is appropriate for introductory level courses in gifted education or courses in program development and planning. It is also suitable for school personnel responsible for making program planning decisions in the area of gifted education and for academic libraries with holdings in this area.

The author was initially introduced to the term "missional" while pursuing advanced ministry studies. He became intrigued by the word and spent several years pursuing its meaning and learning how to become a missional leader in his own life and ministry. Throughout this process, he attempted to apply his own research and study in practical ways in the various ministry roles in which he was involved. From these efforts, he learned valuable lessons about what it meant to be missional and decided to pass his insights on to others. In this book, the author provides his most sincere reflections which he sees as critical to growth in missional capacity. He seeks to clear the path to new, undiscovered ministry horizons while simultaneously deconstructing old, debilitating church models. Below are the major transitions he sees as vital for Christian leaders to experience missional breakthrough: -From Inward to Outward Focused Ministry -From Rigid to Flexible Worship Space -From Clergy- to Laity-Led Ministry -From Compartmentalized to Integrated Life

Some 200 years ago, when the Potawatomi Indians were still among the region's primary inhabitants, there was a winding river that was christened "Coeur de Cerf"-the heart of a stag. Legend has it that the earliest settlers were captivated by a small island that resembled an elk's heart. By 1832, Havilah Beardsley began to lay the foundation for what would soon be known as the village of Elkhart. The little island which inspired the Elkhart name would later be called "Island Park." There were only a few dozen lots in that first plat, but by 1858, Elkhart was incorporated as a growing and bustling new city. Today, Elkhart is recognized as being one of northern Indiana's most enterprising communities, as well as one of the most culturally diverse. Throughout its long and illustrious history, Elkhart has been blessed with a celebration of successes, in fields ranging from musical instruments to pharmaceuticals to recreational vehicles. The images in this book offer a glimpse into the events that helped shape Elkhart into the marvelous city it has become, truly, the "city with a heart" in both name and spirit.
