Teaching Culturally Diverse Gifted Students
The 21st century is witnessing an unprecedented change in its demographics, especially in school settings. Like no other time in history, our nation is becoming overwhelmingly diverse, with Hispanic Americans and African Americans increasing in numbers. However, as our nation and schools become more diverse, we have witnessed little demographic changes relative to diversity in gifted education classes, programs, and services. This guide offers practical advice for building gifted education programs that serve a rich diversity of students. This book features an overview of multicultural gifted education, effective teaching strategies and best practices that support a diverse population of students, and an effective model for building a diverse, successful gifted program. The book also includes a sample curriculum and an extensive listing of print and Web-based recommended resources. This is one of the books in Prufrock Press' popular Practical Strategies Series in Gifted Education. This series offers a unique collection of tightly focused books that provide a concise, practical introduction to important topics concerning the education of gifted children. The guides offer a perfect beginner's introduction to key information about gifted and talented education.
