What educators are saying

Easy resource to use! Fun and engaging for the GT students. Super flexible and easy to modify framework.
Good resource to build an independent project for G/T students, and it works well with Renzulli Learning.


The purpose of this unit is for students to have the opportunity to complete an independent study with teacher guidance and assistance in developing the research content and product.

About this Product
I developed this activity for a Gifted and Talented 7th and 8th grade independent study program. The independent study provides students with an opportunity to self-select and self-direct their independent learning project, with teacher support. Gifted students need guidance and teacher monitoring in the development of the content and product of an independent study program. This packet provides that support and guidance in the steps of brainstorming a unit of study, outlining the questions and goals of their unit, setting a timeline and steps for achieving their goals, and documenting their progress.

★Check it out!: This unit is included in the Gifted and Talented Middle Grades Unit Bundle at a discounted price!
