Journal Article (Journal Article)

The purpose of this study was to examine whether participation in a community-based cooperative learning program affected attitudes toward responsibility of 13 talented and gifted students toward 49 peers with disabilities. A survey was administered to measure role perception of these students as they interacted in gross motor recreational activities with students with disabilities. There was a significant difference between pre- and posttest scores on three of six attitude items. Ordinal data suggested the gifted subjects showed an increase in their felt responsibility in this cooperative learning.
