Rivlin, Harry N.; And Others
The presentations in this volume deal with various aspects of education for the gifted disadvantaged. Maija Blaubergs describes disadvantages experienced by gifted and talented girls in obtaining access to opportunities for achievement congruent with their potentialities. Some of the topics examined are sexist barriers, marriage, institutional and societal support, and motivation and self-concept. A paper by Moshe Smilansky and David Nevo presents a longitudinal study of gifted disadvantaged youth in Israel, and suggests the possibility of experimental programs for gifted disadvantaged young people and the importance of evaluating such programs through longitudinal studies. Harry N. Rivlin points out the roles ethnicity and cultural pluralism play in approaches to educating the gifted disadvantaged. Ed Dodson and Bruce Mitchell present a model that involves the participation of gifted and minority students in planning their educational planning. Lynn H. Fox discusses the role effective career education programs can play in helping girls overcome sociocultural pressures which often prevent them from seeking careers in science and mathematics. Mary M. Frasier examines the educational implications of different cognitive factors in culturally different children. Culturally different children and social barriers which restrict them is the subject of Severo Gomez's presentation. A poem by Soon-Teck Oh describes the feelings and experiences of Japanese Americans during World War II. References and resource lists are provided for most of the presentations. (EB)
