Employing Absolute Equity to Support Gifted Individuals: A Lesson from The Giving Tree
Time & Location
About The Event
Realizing the concept of equity beyond the dominant, educational paradigm, Dr. Kristina Henry Collins explores the connection of social, emotional, and cultural support to talent development in gifted individuals as a matter of fundamental rights and social justice. Using the SENG mission as the framework for discussion, she uncovers a more comprehensive philosophy of equity to expose culturally responsive shortcomings in educational practices, and presents a value-added benefit of modeling the structural design and growth of trees. Join SENG and Dr. Collins as she, in her unique style, juxtaposes two seemingly discrete subjects to offer a diverse perspective on the social and emotional contexts of talent development, and call to action all stakeholders of gifted and talent development.
