Project Period Table: A Successful use of Type III Enrichment for Gifted

Presents the results of the first Type III Enrichment (Project-based) with gifted students at a full-time talent program in Mexico as well as its effects on teamwork abilities, communication, and independent learning. Was conducted as small group project instruction for 12 months to teach High School Chemistry to 10-12-year-old students in an advanced placement program. This culminated with the public presentation of the project at a national Science Custer Fair. We described the team abilities, changes on learning strategies and creativity within this independent but supervised project that involved learning complex biochemical concepts and public speaking skills.
