Enhancing Gifted Education for Underrepresented Students: Promising Recruitment and Programming Strategies
Ecker-Lyster, Meghan; Niileksela, Christopher
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v40 n1 p79-95 Mar 2017
For decades, our educational system has been criticized for the limited recruitment and retention of minority students in gifted education programs. Unfortunately, relatively little progress has been made to alleviate these concerns. An examination of the literature on gifted education for underrepresented students reveals a dearth of information regarding effective programming practices. This article seeks to fill this void by exploring promising best practices for recruitment and retention of underrepresented students in gifted education. Multicultural education, mentoring, and noncognitive skill development are three promising areas that gifted educators can use to enhance programming.
