|Other Titles:||Using a Framework of Talent Development Model to Discover and Nurture Potentials of Gifted and Talented Students from Low Socioeconomic Status and/or Culturally Diverse Backgrounds|
National Taiwan Normal University Special Education Center
In recent years, scholars using talent development as a framework to rethink giftedness and outcomes of gifted education has become a prominent topic of discussion. This article introduced the talentdevelopment mega-model proposed by Subotnik, Olszewski-Kubilius, and Worrell (2011), suggesting that giftedness is malleable and domain-specific. The talent development programs and practices for gifted students from low socioeconomic status (SES) and/or culturally diverse backgrounds were then explored. Through school-based gifted program, pull-out gifted education teachers who work with identified gifted students have extended their services to include a collaborative model and interaction with classroom teachers, preparing classroom teachers for challenging courses to assess students’ performance and discover students’ potentials by using multiple assessments. Summer camps were also provided by higher education institutions for gifted and talented students from low-income and/or culturally diverse backgrounds to uncover and nurture potentials. This article concluded with suggestions to improve present gifted and talented programs in Taiwan.
