Abstract
This action learning project was initiated to develop a format to be used in writing materials for gifted and talented students in science. The project guides were to provide the basis for the senior level science seminar course offered at La Crosse Central High School and to provide an alternative method of instruction for gifted students in other science courses. The guides provide the student with the basis for conducting an independent scientific investigation in a content area of science. Scientific content is learned by taking part in the process of science. Each project guide contains a student guide, and an instructor's guide. The student guide presents a topic and proceeds to ask open ended questions. Some suggestions are given to the student on possible procedures to follow. The instructor's guide contains a list of major concepts, objectives, suggested procedures, safety notes, and background references. These materials are intended to be implemented during the 1983-84 school year.
