Removing the Mask: How to Identify and Develop Giftedness in Students from Poverty

Removing the Mask defines the difference between treating students equally and treating them equitably in gifted and talented programs. This book challenges readers to reflect on the integrity of identification processes. In reality, most identification procedures have educators identifying opportunity rather than giftedness. Instead of focusing on deficits, Removing the Mask gives attention to uncovering the assets of students living in poverty.
