# Challenge Grant for the Gifted: Collaborative Curriculum Projects

##### Challenge Grant for the Gifted: Collaborative Curriculum Projects

The Collaborative Curriculum Projects are intended to enhance the academic achievement of gifted students through the innovative redesign of instruction and collaboration. Collaboration is defined by the Merriam Webster On-line Dictionary as working jointly with others or together in an intellectual endeavor. This requires intellectual engagement beyond audience participation. It is expected that this collaboration will enhance instruction and thus the academic performance of the students by introducing new information, skills, talents, and perspectives to the instruction. It is expected that collaboration will go beyond traditional classroom methodologies such as pairing gifted students for research projects.
