Gifted Book Study - Achieving Equity in Gifted Programming

Event Date: 3/31/2023
Location: Facilitated via Google Classroom

Registration Details:
Achieving Equity in Gifted Programming offers practical research-based programming implementations to increase equity in gifted education. Calling on research on talent development as an instructional intervention, cultural awareness, and social justice in education, this book represents an intersection of theory and practice. Through exploring their own implicit and explicit biases, educators are tasked with responding to the disproportionate participation of economically vulnerable and culturally or linguistically diverse students in gifted programs by rejecting a deficit model approach and focusing on culturally responsive teaching. Each chapter poses an opportunity for educators to address underrepresentation and their own understanding of culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse learners, including their identification and needs.
