GEMS: Gifted Education Module System. Higher Level Thinking in the Junior High.
Davis, Hilarie; And Others
The curriculum, designed for use with gifted students at the junior high level, presents units of instruction which emphasize the higher level thinking skills of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. An introductory section explains each of the three higher level skills and presents tasks illustrating each one. Four units are presented, complete with a list of objectives and learning activities: an English unit on characterization (character description, credibility, contrasts, and actions); a math unit on real numbers (binary operations, fields, abstract systems); a science unit on heat (uses, types, and definition of heat); and a social studies unit on government (state, local, county, and town government).
