Abstract

Research experiences have helped those students win awards, publish papers, and gain entry into subsequent prestigious learning opportunities. Modern curriculum innovation for gifted and advanced high school students ought to include authentic research practices across the core curriculum areas regardless of whether students attend specialized schools or comprehensive high schools with gifted education services. The goal of the project was to involve high school teachers in authentic research and encourage them to take those ideas and practices back to their classrooms. Developing and implementing authentic research experiences with gifted and advanced high school students aligns with national gifted education standards. The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics encourage high school student engagement in authentic research, particularly in the modeling standards and the statistics and probability standards where students are expected to apply quantitative reasoning to investigate specific questions and solve complex problems.
