Description

This activity book, from
the Center for Gifted Education at William & Mary, provides gifted and
advanced learners challenging activities to master and engage with the
Australian Curriculum: English through four mini-units. Each mini-unit is
packed with activities and practice problems that enrich and extend year level
content for Year 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, connection, nature and the human
spirit, and struggle. Each theme was chosen with advanced Year 4 students in
mind, and their emerging need to learn more about themselves, their world and
how to work through adversity to accomplish their goals.
