Culturally Responsive Gifted Classrooms for Culturally Different Students: A Focus on Invitational Learning
Ford, Donna Y.
Gifted Child Today, v38 n1 p67-69 Jan 2015
This article expands the notion of culturally responsive learning environments by including Purkey and Novak's (1996) work on invitational learning. Their typology of four types of schools is described and applied to gifted education classrooms, along with associated characteristics of each. Specific attention is focused on implications for Black and Hispanic students. The author maintains that all classrooms must be culturally responsive, which will help with recruiting and retaining culturally different students in gifted education.
