Promise for the Future: Gifted Education in Rural Communities.
Aamidor, Shirley; Spicker, Howard H.
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v14 n2 p39-46 Spr 1995
Addresses difficulties identifying gifted rural children who are economically disadvantaged and who do not exhibit traditional characteristics of gifted behavior. Suggests that individual assessment be both comprehensive and culturally specific, that curriculum interventions use the resources of rural communities, and that computer technology and telecommunications be used to link rural communities with other educational resources.
