UNDERSTANDING THE IMPACT OF SUMMER SERVICE-LEARNING PROGRAM ON THE SOCIAL DOMINANCE ORIENTATION OF GIFTED ADOLESCENTS

Abstract
Using bootstrap methodology, this article presents findings from a pre-/post-comparative study that investigated the levels of social dominance in academically-talented adolescents enrolled in a summer academic camp. Students completed community service activities as part of their social sciencebased community service-learning course. These students were then compared to students in humanities and science courses who did not complete the civic education component. Findings suggested that a statistically significant difference existed in the social dominance orientation (SDO) between the students who participated in service-learning and the students who did not.
Keywords
Gifted, academically-talented adolescents, service-learning, social dominance.
