Service-Learning and Gifted Students

Service-learning offers many advantages to classrooms with gifted students. A well designed service-learning project is naturally differentiated and can meet the needs of all learners. Service-learning aligns well with key needs of gifted students:

  • Service-learning provides an opportunity for "creative productivity"
  • Service-learning supports social, emotional, and ethical development
  • Service-learning helps students develop critical "problem finding" skills
  • Service-learning allows for open-ended inquiry and innovative solutions
  • Service-learning promotes youth leadership development
