Sosniak LA, Gabelko NH. Every child's right : academic talent development by choice, not chance. New York: Teachers College Press; 2008.

"No child should have to be identified as 'gifted' in order to benefit from a rich, challenging learning experience. This book tells the story of the Academic Talent Development Program (ATDP) at UC Berkeley, an example of a long-standing, self-supporting summer program that shifted from 'mining' to 'growing' talent. The authors provide an insider's view of the teachers, students, curriculum, and school culture as a model for creating academic enrichments programs in and out of school."
