    SUMMARY: This book contains two Language Arts units for gifted students in the 5th grade. The first unit is on Research which includes topics such as "What Do I Know and Where Do I Go," "Texts on the Internet: Friend or Foe?" and "How to Create a Research Question." The second unit is on Aristotle's Rhetoric: Learning the Art of Persuasion. It has topics such as "Understanding Rhetoric," "Rhetoric in Corporate Advertising," and Epideictic Rhetoric." REVIEW: I taught both fifth grade and inclusive SUMMARY: This book contains two Language Arts units for gifted students in the 5th grade. The first unit is on Research which includes topics such as "What Do I Know and Where Do I Go," "Texts on the Internet: Friend or Foe?" and "How to Create a Research Question." The second unit is on Aristotle's Rhetoric: Learning the Art of Persuasion. It has topics such as "Understanding Rhetoric," "Rhetoric in Corporate Advertising," and Epideictic Rhetoric." REVIEW: I taught both fifth grade and inclusive gifted student classes so this is the type of book I might have reviewed for use in my classroom. First, I will review the units themselves. The first unit on research is really nothing special or stretching. This is the exact unit I taught to my fifth grade students as a whole. It is a very good unit to teach to this age group as they head into middle school, but seems very out of place in this two-unit gifted education book. The second unit on the other hand is exactly what gifted students need to stretch their minds. It is actually quite high on the difficulty level and could easily be used for gifted students of grades 5-8. The two lessons taken together are a strange pairing in one book. This book is based on the CLEAR model which means it has five elements: 1. Continual formative assessment 2. Clear learning goals 3. Data driven learning experiences 4. Authentic products 5. Rich curriculum All this really means is that this book is "research based" and if your administration requires you to use this kind of curriculum, it fits the bill. However, it also means it is not a user friendly book with rich extension activities that allow the child's mind to reach new heights. Instead, there are blurbs on each page instructing the teacher as if he/she is not of average intelligence such as: "Remind students to save this handout and brainstorming exercise. They will need it for future lessons." The language and the layout of the workbook are not user friendly and have extra things thrown in to meet the CLEAR method, but clog up the lesson. On the other hand, there are handouts for each lesson which can be very helpful in moving a lesson along. If you are looking for a difficult unit to challenge your gifted learners, I recommend the unit on rhetoric in this book. However, this book carries a very high price tag only to be half useful. NOTE: I received a free copy of this book from LibraryThing and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    I have a Master's in education and didn't learn some of this until my undergrad days...so I wonder if we aren't pushing a little hard. That being said, I think that gifted students who start with this series in third grade may have an advantage going forward. If I have a suggestion, it would be that realia is an important and beneficial part of any education, especially for 2E students in Language Arts, yet it was not given any emphasis.
