Achieving Equity in Gifted Programming offers practical, research-based programming implementations to increase equity in gifted education and:

  • Helps educators understand diverse learners’ identification and needs.
  • Calls educators to act in response to the disproportionate participation of diverse students in gifted programs.
  • Builds off of research on talent development, cultural awareness, and social justice in education.
  • Tasks educators with exploring their own implicit and explicit biases.
  • Asks educators to focus on culturally responsive teaching.

Each chapter poses an opportunity for educators to address underrepresentation and their own understanding of culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse learners. Underrepresentation in gifted education can be addressed—it does not have to go on in perpetuity.

Review by: Reanna Fulton, Gifted Education Review - March 1, 2021
This book would serve as a great resource for professional development on educational equity with teachers and administrators, even in the least diverse of districts. Using these strategies, schools can move forward providing students with rigorous educational opportunities, ensuring that all students, even those who were previously overlooked, are challenged.
Review by: Sarah Pennington, MiddleWeb - October 15, 2020
Achieving Equity in Gifted Programming would be a valuable read for those who want to take on the intimidating but essential task of working toward equity in gifted programs.
Review: Midwest Book Review - April 13, 2020

Expertly organized and accessibly presented, "Achieving Equity in Gifted Programming: Dismantling Barriers and Tapping Potential" is an ideal instructional guide that would well serve as a curriculum textbook for school district in-service training programs, and is an essential, core addition to both college and university library Teacher Education collections.
