Plucker, Jonathan A.; Peters, Scott J.; Schmalensee, Stephanie
Gifted Child Today, v40 n4 p245-250 Oct 2017
As the awareness of the existence and negative effects of excellence gaps has grown among educators and policy makers, so too has a desire for research-supported interventions to reduce these gaps. A recent review of research related to promoting equitable outcomes for all gifted students identified six specific strategies for reducing excellence gaps. This article describes those components, along with a strategy of frontloading that should serve as the foundation for any comprehensive intervention efforts.
