I will pay for the following article Gifted and Talented. The work is to be 5 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Consider the example of musically, creatively, and spatially gifted students and other students who manifest a great deal of practical and creative intelligence (Ford et al., 1996, p. 75). These students are less likely to demonstrate the same degree of command over the English language, grammar, vocabulary, and presentation, but the same does not translate into their non-giftedness. It remains the responsibility of educational institutions to identify and accommodate these students as well (Phillipson & McCann, 2007, p. 52).

Even the first and the longest-running longitudinal study concerning giftedness individuals, conducted by Lewis Terman, failed to take into account cultural differences amongst a diverse population. This also represents that despite all the claims of equality and equal opportunity, the United States is still far from achieving the status of a colourblind society (Ford & Trotman, 2001, p. 237).

Several studies and researches in the recent future have also confirmed this fact. Terman cherry-picked individuals for his study of gifted individuals and then continued to take deep interest within their lives (Pfeiffer, 2008, p. 97). He played the roles of a counsellor, mentor, teacher, and friend for these people and did not hesitate to pull strings and write letters of recommendations for this student. The prime reason being that he wanted to ensure that these gifted students could live up to their potential. Interestingly enough, one of the most crucial conclusions derived from this study is the fact that achievement and giftedness are not correlated despite repeated attempts by Terman to influence the results of this sample (Ford et al., 1996, p. 75).

This finding is crucial to study multiculturalism within gifted students because there are many institutions, which factor the achievements and accomplishments of students to measure and identify their giftedness. Quite understandably, giftedness can allow individuals to achieve more than the average student population. this causation is not a necessity (Phillipson & McCann, 2007, p. 52). The insistence of institutions on factoring achievements to measure giftedness has also played a critical role in excluding minority populations from gifted students. In most cases, these minority students belong from lower-income class families, where they fail to gather the same level of resources to assist them in standing out of the crowd. Also, they are likely to face personal problems at home, which may limit their productivity and progress at school (Pfeiffer, 2008, p. 97).
