Cultural Competence: Preparing Gifted Students for a Diverse Society
Ford, Donna Y.; Whiting, Gilman W.
Roeper Review, v30 n2 p104-110 Apr 2008
It is common knowledge that our schools and society have changed in many ways, especially due to increasing immigration. Between 1972 and 2004, for example, the percentage of culturally diverse students doubled. The majority of scholarship in education seems to focus on how these changes and trends impact educators and their competence in working with diverse students. In this article, we take a different approach and focus on students. We contend that, like teachers, gifted students must have formal educational experiences that prepare them for the ever-changing nation and world, thus helping them to become culturally competent.
