Research Findings • 1. Baum (1988): When the Type Ⅲ independent study was used as an intervention for learning disabled students with high ability, it served to improve the students’ behavior including self-regulation. • 2. Johnson (2000): Minority underachieving learners show that the emphasis on creative thinking serves to reverse underachieving learners. • 3.Olenchak and Renzulli (1989): The SEM Model leads to positive changes in the attitude of students and teachers toward education of the gifted.
