Interesting, engaging material for gifted learners!
I've been using this book with my 6th-grade gifted learners during the last few weeks, and it has been WONDERFUL!  They have been so eager to dive in and learn more about the structure of their brain, and how it helps them become better learners.  We've just started the second unit, and my students are loving the opportunity to be curious and ask good questions.  I began teaching this material virtually and have recently transitioned back to in-person learning, and this book lends itself well to both formats.  The content is concise and well-organized, and the materials engage students at a high level of thinking.  What a wonderful resource!
