WINNER OF THE 2013 LEGACY BOOK AWARD FOR SCHOLARS*

This is the first publication of the Columbus Group, who in February of 2014 held their first publicly-shared gathering in Albuquerque, New Mexico—a special event for the participants.  The next public-participation gathering will be in September 2014 on the East Coast, and it also will be open to people who want to attend.  Off the Charts is the most original and important publication on giftedness to appear in many years.

The editors have brought together 19 essays by renowned gifted education specialists (see below for the full list) to produce this important new publication.

Off the Charts is an exploration of the effects of asynchronous development on gifted children and adults. It contains sections on Asynchrony and the Individual, Asynchrony and the Family, Asynchrony and Learning and chapters describe the nature of asynchrony, methods of dealing with the challenges of asynchrony, and recommendations for adapting education in a variety of settings.  A Bibliography on Asynchronous Development provides extensive further reading.

The contributors' contention is that Gifted Education should be from a child-centered perspective, rather than from a 'product perspective' in which the emphasis is on achievement, competition and outer recognition. The child-centered approach concentrates on self-development and personal growth and fosters interrelatedness and wholeness.

It is an important resource for parents, teachers, counselors, and others concerned with the optimal development of gifted to highly-gifted individuals. 598 pages.

The book is dedicated to Annemarie Roeper (1918-2012) who before she died contributed a chapter. From the introduction: "Unusual intelligence, when understood, accepted, supported, allowed, and even celebrated, can lead, as it did for Annemarie, to a life experience of passion, accomplishment, service to the world, and deep personal meaning."

Review:

From the Gifted Homeschoolers' Forum: "Off the Charts by the “mythical” and illustrious Columbus Group is an excellent book for parents, teachers, counselors, and others concerned with the optimal development of gifted to profoundly gifted individuals... will quickly top the chart of must-reads for parents and professionals alike."
