Increasing Participation of Minority and Culturally Diverse Students in Gifted Programs.
Yancey, Elizabeth
This pamphlet is designed as a resource to assist school administrators and directors of gifted and talented programs in their efforts to increase participation of minority students in such programs. It explores issues related to the current underrepresentation of minority students including statistics reflecting that underrepresentation; definitions of giftedness; identification issues and recommendations for improving identification; descriptors of promising practices for identifying gifted minority students; and ways of increasing minority participation. Appendices provide a bibliography of the literature on identification of gifted disadvantaged students (including sources of sample forms for informal identification procedures) and a listing of professional training programs in gifted education.
