The grade 4 book:

  • Contains five units and more than 50 hours of instruction.
  • Shares helpful directions for implementing lessons and connecting content across the curriculum.
  • Addresses psychosocial skills.
  • Features critical thinking activities, hands-on building and design, reading, writing, creativity, and math and science connections.
  • Covers relevant topics, including resilience, growth mindset, perfectionism, empathy, self-understanding and identity, friendship, and what it means to be gifted.

Each classroom-tested lesson addresses one or more affective standards from the National Association for Gifted Children, psychosocial development areas for gifted learners, and academic standards.

Mark Hess is one of those incredible educators who is a master at honoring and engaging his students.  He has put that passion into this beneficial resource for others to profit from his classroom-tested lessons that address key gifted and talented affective standards.  The topics are spot on for this grade level—who would not love exploring spy training or superheroes as a fourth grader?!  It is user-friendly and well laid out, outlines hands-on and interactive content, shows pictures of actual examples and integrates with STEAM curriculum skills as well.   As a veteran educator and gifted & talented consultant, I will highly recommend it to educators and counselors in my 20 school districts and beyond.
