Minority Parents' Role in the Education of Their Gifted and Talented Children.
Frasier, Mary M.
This paper is intended to provide basic information to minority parents to support their involvement in the education of their gifted and talented children. The first section reviews federal and state (Georgia) definitions of gifted and talented as well as regulations concerning eligibility and retesting. The second section identifies typical characteristics of gifted and talented students in the areas of: motivation and interests, communication, memory, problem solving, inquiry, insight, reasoning, and imagination. The nurturing home environment is the focus of the third section which notes such nurturing aspects as achievement aspirations, language modeling, academic guidance, intellectuality, activities in the home, and work habits. The final section lists important resources--13 books, a publishing company, and three periodicals. Suggestions for minority parents conclude each section. (Contains 8 references.) (DB)
