Removing the Mask
Giftedness in PovertyBook - 2000
Ruby K. Payne is best known for her work on the "hidden rules of economic class" and how they affect learning, after 30 years in public education. Now a speaker and publisher, she teams with Dr. Paul Slocumb, former president of Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented and deputy superintendent for curriculum and instruction. Dr. Slocumb is now consulting and writing, and speaks extensively on this subject. Removing the Mask provides identification instruments and processes to identify gifted learners from poverty, thus enabling schools to achieve equity in their gifted program. Behavior interventions and support systems for the students, once identified, helps keep them in the program and succeed.
