(5) Milgram, R. M., Dunn, R., & Price, G. E. (Eds.). (1993). Teaching and counseling gifted and talented adolescents: An international learning styles perspective. Westport, CT: Praeger Publishers. Cost: $60.00.

If you are interested in multiculturally diverse gifted and talented students and the concept of multi-intelligence, this book is unique. It describes the learning styles of such students in nine different cultures—Canada, Brazil, Egypt, Greece, Guatemala (Guatemalans and Mayans), Israel, Korea, the Philippines, and the United States—and demonstrates distinctive learning-style patterns among these adolescents that establish their uniqueness.

(6) Dunn, R., & Griggs, S. A. (1995). Multiculturalism and learning styles: Teaching and counseling adolescents. Westport, CT: Greenwood Press.

This book provides extensive research documenting the differences in learning styles among African-American, Asian-American, European-American, and Hispanic-American students and provides support for the premise that the school-related underachievement among minority students is directly related to teaching analytically to many global, tactual, kinesthetic, in-need-of-mobility, and peer-interactive combinations of style.
