College and Career Readiness for Gifted African American Girls: A Call to School Counselors
Mayes, Renae D.; Hines, Erik M.
Interdisciplinary Journal of Teaching and Learning, v4 n1 p31-42 Spr 2014
Current literature on college and career readiness highlights the role of educators in promoting the success of all students. However, few studies have focused on the specific needs of gifted African American girls. This article discusses the school experiences and career development of gifted African American girls and it provides a culturally responsive and gendered framework for school counselors to promote college and career readiness of gifted African American girls using the components of college and career readiness counseling endorsed by the College Board National Office of School Counselor Advocacy (NOSCA, 2010). Implications for future research, school counseling training, and professional development are discussed.
