    Multiple Intelligences The article that is to be reviewed is "Identification of giftedness in culturally diverse groups" by Wilma Vialle in Gifted Education International, 1999, Vol 13, pp 250 -257. In this article Vialle (1999) recognises the under representation of disadvantaged students in educationally gifted programs. Vialle identifies the disadvantaged students as being children from "...non-English-speaking backgrounds, indigenous children and economically disadvantaged children" (Vialle, 1999, p250). Vialle suggests the cause of this under representation of disadvantaged students lies in the linear model approach "..whereby a narrow set of identification procedures usually an IQ test ...

A child afflicted with emotional or behavioral disorders may exhibit signs of poor self confidence. This may lead to, but not necessarily related to, social withdrawal, task avoidance, frustration or anxiety. About three to five percent of ...

  • Intelligence And Iq Testing - 1,162 words
    Intelligence And Iq Testing Can intelligence be measured? Does an IQ test actually measure a person's intelligence? Does a high score indicate a genius? Does a low score indicate stupidity or merely ignorance? These questions have been asked over and over again by psychiatrists and scientists alike, but to date there are no clear answers. These questions cannot be answered without first defining what is meant by the term intelligence. Once intelligence has been defined then it should be easy to answer these questions; however, multiple definitions of the word tend to lead to further confusion. In a 1921 symposium entitled "Intelligence and Its Measurement", psychiatrists were asked to define ...

    ... ay not be passed down because they are broken up at meiosis and a new genotype is formed at conception. One of the consequences of the Human Genome Project, tasked with sequencing the entire human complement of DNA, is a public perception that scientists are developing a molecular understanding of the human condition. Seldom a month goes by without a media article trumpeting a new genetic link to a behavior or disease. Everything from schizophrenia to television watching is postulated to be linked to genetics, yet scientists are a long way from being able to explain the ramifications of the human genome sequence. Kaye (1992) suggests that phrasing used by the media such as gene for alcoh ...
