Main Content

Dr. Frances Karnes, director of the Karnes Center for Gifted Studies at The University of Southern Mississippi, and one of her former students, Dr. Kristen Stephens, recently had their work The ultimate guide to internet resources for teachers of gifted students published by Prufrock Press. With The Ultimate Guide to Internet Resources for Teachers of Gifted Students, educators gain a detailed overview of how they can use the internet to teach new information, extend students’ leaning, and offer exciting opportunities for differentiation.

The authors discuss the many ways in which internet resources might be used and provide tips on connecting with experts and peers, conducting responsible research, evaluating websites, and more. The book’s extensive annotated listing of online resources will make it easy for teachers of gifted students to plan lessons, enhance students’ understanding of material, and encourage students to pursue their academic and extracurricular interests.
