After the Dust Has Settled: Youth Reflect on Their High School Mentored Research Experience.
Davalos, Ruth A.; Haensly, Patricia A.
Roeper Review, v19 n4 p204-07 Jun 1997
This study investigated the perceived value (after several years) of a year-long independent study/mentorship course provided to 90 gifted high school students. Respondents reported that the course had improved their self-esteem; that the mentor was a significant influence and helped in "real life" learning; and that the course helped in career exploration, improving work skills, and preparing for college.
