Finally found! strong social / emotional curriculum for gifted learners!
Throughout my years in the field of gifted education I have been frustrated by the lack of social/emotional curricula to meet these learners needs.  I was thrilled to discover this excellent resource with ready-to-use lessons and activities for teachers of gifted learners.  Topics such as empathy, curiosity, perfectionism, and identity are examined with fun and interactive lessons that dive into these topics, but not in a heavy-handed way.  Through character analysis, literature, poetry, classroom clue activities, arts based projects and more, students explore these concepts within a larger context.  I also love the writing/discussion prompts at the end of this resource.  I intend to use them for discussions, as well as for journal writing prompts within my work with students.
