Review: Gifted Child Today - December 17, 2015
This book includes detailed and engaging lesson plans, worksheets, graphic organizers, and lists of resources needed to implement each lesson. With clear objectives, the lessons and activities can relate to academic concepts or be implemented on their own. Ideas in this resource provide avenues to opening effective and meaningful dialogue with students about issues, including self-esteem, healthy friendships, decision making, and academic learning preferences.
Review by: Deb Hubble, MiddleWeb - November 19, 2015

Even used sporadically, the lessons in this book would be valuable in building classroom community and individual responsibility with ANY groups of middle grades students . . . Especially to build awareness of the unique needs of gifted students, but also to enrich the education provided to ALL students in schools today, this book is a welcome resource to any teacher determined to make education relevant and meaningful to this generation.
