Some Considerations in the Training of Teachers for the Gifted Minority Child.
McCloud, Barbara K.
Characteristics of gifted minority children are considered (including a physical rather than aural learning style, external rather than internal orientation, and a preference for inductive over deductive reasoning) and requirements for training teachers to work with this population are discussed. Addressed are the importance of training regarding nontraditional identification of gifted minority students, human relations and empathetic understanding, a base of multicultural education or cultural pluralism, and the ability to make program adjustments for specific children. Practicum experiences are seen as very important. (CL)
