Practical Solutions for Underserved Gifted Students...Effective Curriculum for Underserved Populations

 Tamra Stambaugh Ph.D. and Kimberley L. Chandler Ph.D. recently published a book with Prufrock Press titled Practical Solutions for Underserved Gifted Students:  Effective Curriculum for Underserved Populations.

The purpose of this book is to describe the curriculum interventions found to be effective with gifted students typically underrepresented in gifted programs (including children of poverty and those who are from culturally and linguistically diverse populations) in order to delineate common features.

Emanating from research conducted through the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Program in particular, data exist that provide evidence of effective curriculum interventions for working with CLD students. Based on the research, the authors included a model that incorporates features of curriculum design and delivery for promoting the achievement of students from underserved gifted populations. They then provided a list of evidence-based recommendations for use by various stakeholders to optimize educational opportunities and talent development for these learners.

Tamra Stambaugh, Ph.D. is a 2007 graduate of the Educational Policy, Planning and Leadership – Gifted Education program and Kimberley L. Chandler received her B.A. from William and Mary in 1984, her M.Ed. in Gifted Education in 1992, and a Ph.D. in 2004 from the Educational Policy, Planning and Leadership – Gifted Education program.
