Transcript of Culturally Diverse Students

Culturally Diverse and Gifted
Why Should We Care?
Culture comes from experiences gained throughout your life. “Culture is a man’s medium. This means personality, how people express themselves, and the way they think” (Hollins, 1996).

culturally diverse?
“What is valued and viewed as gifted in one culture may not be considered gifted in another culture" (Ford, 2004).
