Review by: Jeffrey Shoemaker, Gifted Intervention Specialist - October 7, 2016
What I love about this book, is the fact that it has menus for different types of literature including fiction and nonfiction. Each section has a treasure trove of ideas teachers can use to enhance their language arts classes for their gifted students, and their regular education students. Each section has discusses ways to use menus for genres of literature, and different types of books.
Review: Mindprint Learning - April 6, 2016

The choices are hands-on activities that will enable learners to apply their knowledge in creative, motivating ways, such as making a movie, recording a rap song out of a favorite poem, or building a museum exhibit. All the activities are structured to demonstrate understanding and application, and they rely not only on mastery of the skill but also on the student's ability to organize and execute the project . . . This helpful teacher's workbook provides in-depth guidance on managing each activity, including objectives, time frame, grading rubrics, and special notes and should be a useful supplement for teachers prepared to implement project-based learning in their classrooms.
