Understanding the Experiences of Bilingual, Latino/a Adolescents: "Voices from Gifted and General Education"
Shaunessy, Elizabeth; McHatton, Patricia Alvarez; Hughes, Claire; Brice, Alejandro; Ratliff, Mary Ann
Roeper Review, v29 n3 p174-182 2007
Eight gifted and eight general-education students engaged in discussions regarding their observations of, experiences in, and recommendations for education. Six categories emerged through qualitative analysis of their conversations. These categories include: problem solving, task commitment, self-perceptions, education, communication, and discrimination. Content within each category provides a glimpse into the students' perceptions of their schooling experiences. The roles of ethnic identity development, identification with majority culture, adolescence, and gifted-ness are examined and recommendations for future research are provided. (Contains 3 tables and 1 endnote.)
