In the Eyes of the Beholder: Critical Issues for Diversity in Gifted Education

In the Eyes of the Beholder: Critical Issues for Diversity in Gifted Education offers the most extensive look available at how gifted education can rise to encourage a more diverse student population and become enriched by the diversity of those children. This book looks specifically at diversity in gifted education as it relates to race, gender, and socioeconomic status.Topics include:the identification of giftedness among an increasingly diverse population of students, specific service modification to address diversity, improved counseling and guidance, and specific curriculum and pedagogical methods for supporting the success of every gifted child.The book features distinctively different points of view from Donna Ford, Howard Gardner, Linda Gottfredson, Robert Sternberg, Joseph Renzulli, Joyce VanTassel-Baska, and many other important authors and scholars whose main work for many years has been with a wide variety of gifted and talented students.Perhaps diversity discussions can now rest on a broader, more fundamental basis than the usual rhetoric.

Educators and gifted child specialists will come away from reading this book with a somewhat greater sensitivity to the needs of these special populations.
