Homeschooling a Gifted Child (Kindle edition)
Do you have a gifted child? Over the centuries, gifted individuals are given to parents and teachers while they are yet children. Not all of them are full-blown geniuses in every area. But in one way or another, they evidence capacities that far outstrip the average. What we do with these children is important not just for them alone, but as we have seen, also for the contribution they will make to the whole of history.
We can augment the capacity of our gifted children by learning how to take practical steps in five areas that this book describes. This approach is infinitely superior to plodding through acquiring a longer list of facts than normal in a one-size-fits-all boring classroom to earn a meaningless grade. Also, learn how to recognize problem areas early and learn what to DO to minimize those problems.
This Kindle eBook includes the content of our booklet/eBooks on Teaching Gifted Children, the Humpty Dumpty Intellectual Stretch, and Critical Thinking Skills. It contains many pages of actual exercises in critical thinking skills and exercises for developing the ability to spot logical fallacies quickly.

A reader’s review of this Kindle book:
Mrs. Webb of New Jersey called this book “Worth the price just for the critical thinking skills section,” and wrote, “I have read through this book, and it is filled with great ideas to challenge and motivate a gifted child. Renee Ellison provides information on topics such as identifying gifted children, goal setting, career guidance, and higher level thinking skills.
As a teacher with experience in public school, Sunday school, homeschool, and co-op settings, this information is invaluable. However, what makes this worth its weight in gold is the special section on critical thinking skills. It is essentially a condensed course in logic. It helps you to identify fallacies and advertising strategies. It is so clear and easy to understand. It even comes with questions to try to answer to put the info to use! Very well done! I plan to use it with my high school aged daughter.”
