The field associated with educating students with gifts and talents has grappled for years with issues associated with locating and appropriately serving diverse students. As our schools have become more diverse, educators have struggled to effectively deal with the diversity of student backgrounds. Consequently, diversity among the gifted child population has been determined to be a much-needed area of research. "Critical Readings on Diversity and Gifted Students" is a two-volume compilation of 66 articles that originally appeared in the "Journal for the Education of the Gifted." Volume 1 features 47 articles focused on diverse gifted students within the United States and diverse gifted students outside of the United States. This volume includes articles on gifted African Americans, Asian Americans, English language learners, and students from low-income backgrounds, as well as gifted students in China, England, Taiwan, Singapore, the Netherlands, and the Czech Republic.
Descriptors: Academically Gifted, Asian American Students, Foreign Countries, Second Language Learning, Critical Reading, Talent, Student Diversity, Student Characteristics, Journal Articles, Periodicals, African American Students, English Language Learners, Low Income, Socioeconomic Background, Educational Research
