"Dominant notions of intelligence and “common-sense” ideas of the social positions in which working-class Latin@s belong have continued the cycle of theoretical frameworks that fail to recognize and analyze the intelligences, knowledge, and sophisticated skills developed by those successfully straddling subjugated and hegemonic cultural worlds. It is, thus, not surprising that very few studies have explored the identities and trajectories of high-achieving Mexican-origin males as scientifically valid sources to potentially inform conceptions of intelligence and giftedness.This qualitative study of three Mexican-origin heterosexual male students that were born and raised in low-income urban settings and went on to earn graduate degrees introduces the Mestiz@3 Theory of Intelligences (MTI)."
