VanTassel-Baska, Joyce
National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented
This monograph addresses planning and developing curricula for low income and minority gifted learners. Issues discussed include collaboration among professionals working with these students, choice of school program delivery models, involvement of parent and community support systems in nurturing potential, and curriculum interventions directed toward the needs and profiles of this population. Section I focuses on definitions of low income and minority groups as the terms relate to gifted and talented students, intervention strategies, and collaboration among professionals. Section II describes characteristics of low income and minority gifted learners, and Section III presents model interventions to be used with this population. Finally, new directions for future curriculum and program design for use with low income and minority gifted learners are discussed. Three appendixes are included: (1) Interventions With Low Income and Minority Students Affecting Achievement and Motivation; (2) Effective Educational Interventions for Minority and Low Socioeconomic Learners; and (3) Libraries Link Learning (LLL) Sample Sessions. (Contains 1 figures.)
