Uncovering Gifted, Diverse Learners


Presenter: Karen Zeske, Ph.D.

Grade Level: Elementary & Secondary
Hours: 1

With so much effort and attention placed on raising low performing students, researchers are finding that G/T students in the classroom are often stagnating in their achievement. While this group of learners are being left behind, low-income gifted students are falling even further behind their higher-income classmates. Good program design can address all of these achievement gaps, including the unique needs of low-income students.
