Spotlighting Women in Gifted Education: Some Leaders You Hardly Know

Friday, November 10
3:45 PM - 4:15 PM
Location: 213 A

In this session, we spotlight the work of several profound leaders—all women—whose efforts to shine light on the nature and needs of the gifted should inform and guide research and theory of the future. The presenters provide a summary of the seminal work and lived experiences of Leta Hollingsworth, Ruth Strang, Lulu Stedman, Annemarie Roeper, and Joanne Whitmore, among others. These leaders and scholars contributed to many facets of the field that we accept as “law of the land” in gifted child education. But, their work was anything but universally received. Join us for lively discussion and an opportunity to discover a rich history many do not realize exists.
