Pedagogy of Patriarchy: A Window on American 21st Century Gifted Education.
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v12 n3 p160-62 Spr 2001
Discussion of trends in gifted education finds a tension between "matriarchal" (equality-oriented) and "patriarchal" (excellence-oriented) pedagogy and promotes "patriarchal pedagogy" as more appropriate for, and beneficial to, the development of gifted education in the United States. This approach fosters access by gifted students to appropriate learning experiences according to their readiness level, regardless of socioeconomic status. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
