Bridging the fields of gifted and multicultural education, this path-breaking volume provides a comprehensive and practical resource for raising the expectations and level of instruction for gifted minority students. The authors offer case studies of multicultural gifted education in practice, suggest methods for “best practice” for classroom teachers, supply sample activities, and provide guidelines and a checklist to help evaluate current multicultural education programs. Preparing students for an increasingly diverse world is now a goal of most school districts, and this volume will help educators to modify their curricula and educational practices to ensure that this goal becomes a reality.
