Underserved Gifted Populations Responding to Their Needs and Abilities by Joan Smutny

Quantity in Basket:none
Code: 1-57273-288-1

This volume expands the framework of gifted education to include more diversified populations that urgently need identification and support. It offers a definitive statement on the issues and objectives for educators, administrators, scholars, and students. It examines such factors as environment (urban, rural, impoverished), culture (multicultural, bilingual), age (early childhood), and gender (girls) that have made gifted students either invisible or unqualified for special services. It reveals how students with unique characteristics (learning disabilities, emotional problems, highly gifted or creatively talented) often do not gain access to the education they need because they exist outside the mainstream population of gifted students. The book explores the unique problems these target populations face, creative strategies for identification and instruction, as well as current efforts and/or solutions actual programs, curricula, and activities. Year: 2003 Pages: 528
