Service Learning For Gifted Students: It's Really A Renzulli Type III... Better Known as Operation Houndstooth

Friday, November 10
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: Exhibit Hall Roundtable 11

High quality service learning and creative productivity processes (Type IIIs) are similar because they both provide in-depth investigative research experiences that culminate in development of creative products and services. This session compares the two processes and presents “how-to’s” for creating high quality products and services. Both processes call for students to learn by assuming roles as first-hand investigators, writers, artists, or other types of practicing professionals. In each case, the student’s role is transformed from lesson learner to first-hand inquirer where he/she learns to think, feel, and act like the real-world practicing professional.
