Wolfe, Lila F.
Canadian Journal of Special Education, v6 n1 p88-97 1990
A case study is presented of a science class for 10 underachieving gifted intermediate grade students. The paper describes how a focus on overcoming underachievement might conflict with the need for active, hands-on science activities. Suggestions are offered for integrating the goals of raising self-concept while developing skills of inquiry and problem solving. (Author/JDD)
