Contemporary Identification and Program Models for Gifted Third World Children.
Stallings, Clifford J.
The author maintains that IQ testing developed in a political context and still serves to descriminate against minority group gifted children; he suggests a method of identifying potentially gifted disadvantaged children by using culturally familiar experiences. The discriminatory aspects of intelligence testing are evidenced by quotes from L. Terman and analysis of U.S. immigration policy. Examples are given of cultural differences in the definitions of familiar words. Briefly described is the Stallings Environmentally Based Screen which evaluates recall, depth of information and detail, and abstract thought by using content determined by the psychometrist at each individual school. Educational programs are encouraged to gradually blend experiences from the child's immediate environment into the general school curriculum. (DB)
