Children's Literature for the Gifted Elementary School Child.
Vida, Louisa Kramer
A literature program for gifted sixth graders meets one hour per day three days a week and covers four topics during the year: biography, realistic fiction, poetry, and tragedy. The biography unit consists of reading three biographies, completing three corresponding directed reading activities, and writing a five page research project on a famous person's life. The second unit, realistic fiction, includes reading three novels, completing three directed reading activities, completing three book reports, and writing an original short story of approximately three pages. The third unit, poetry, includes reading, writing, and discussing numerous poems and a class writing project of a book of original poetry. The final unit of the year, tragedy, includes reading three plays and taking field trips to see a tragic movie and play. Each unit includes a learning package and group discussion. The culminating activity for the year is a class project of writing and performing a play. Each activity and unit includes specific educational goals for gifted children. (TJ)
