This book, from the Center for Gifted Education at William & Mary, provides gifted and advanced learners challenging activities to master and engage with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts through four mini units. Each mini unit is packed with activities that enrich and extend grade-level ELA content for grade 4. Included texts have messages and characters that are developmentally suitable for students. Through higher order reasoning questions, resulting discussions, and student-created products associated with these texts, gifted and advanced students’ needs are met while still maintaining messages and characters to which students can relate. Students will be exposed to themes such as improvement, change, nature and the human spirit, and struggle. Each theme was chosen with advanced fourth-grade students in mind and their emerging need to learn more about themselves, their world, and how to work through adversity to accomplish their goals.

Review by: Linda Biondi, MiddleWeb - September 15, 2016
I would recommend this book specifically to teachers of gifted students, from third to fifth grade, depending on the levels and needs of the students. The book and units meet the requirements of gifted education by providing units that are rigorous, challenging so students can learn beyond grade-level concepts and skills, and provide an opportunity for students to produce “high-end” work that is meaningful and meets the Standards. You will be pleased with the results.
