The expert guide to the major issues and most promising strategies for meeting the needs of high-ability, culturally diverse students!

Biased testing strategies, societal pressures and the attitudes of teachers are but a few of the obstacles that hamper efforts to identify and serve the needs of culturally diverse gifted students. The articles in Culturally Diverse and Underserved Populations of Gifted Students address these and other issues and suggest tactics to resolve the under representation of high-ability minority students in gifted programs.

Key features include:

  • Alexinia Y. Baldwin’s review of the literature on underrepresented populations in gifted programs and her recommendations to ensure that the needs of gifted culturally diverse students are met
  • Case studies of culturally diverse, high-potential students
  • An exploration of community attitudes and peer expectations that discourage high achievement

Shedding light on the unique needs of culturally diverse gifted students, posing culturally savvy identification strategies, and discussing options for appropriate programming and program staffing, this reference book is a must-have for gifted program developers and gifted specialists alike.

The ERGE Series:
