Unique collaborative learning possibilities exist when there are a few academically talented or gifted students in a class. Under the right conditions they can advance socially, develop intellectually and make a contribution to the regular classroom. The research evidence from related fields is overwhelming: students of all ability levels learn more and have better attitudes toward others when they work together as a group (Wang and Walberg, 1985). Cooperative learning activities can help the gifted avoid boredom - while assisting regular students.
