Speaker: Jaret Hodges, PhD, University of North Texas
Title: Identifying and Meeting the Needs of Gifted Students from Diverse Populations
Education should address the diverse needs of students, including those who have outstanding levels of aptitude or competence in academic domains. But it can be challenging to identify and support gifted students, and particularly those from populations who are traditionally marginalized in Texas public schools (e.g., Black; Latinx; Native American; in poverty; English-language learners). Dr. Hodges will discuss successful identification and programming models for children from marginalized populations. Implications for education inequity will also be discussed.
