Part of a curriculum series for academically gifted elementary students in the area of reading, the document presents objectives and activities for language arts instruction. There are three major objectives: (1) recognizing persuasive use of words, vague and imprecise words, multiple meanings conveyed by a single word, and propaganda techniques; (2) evaluating material by verifying information, finding contradictions, and making comparisons of sources to support a point of view; and (3) generalizing as to the author's purpose and form of writing and thinking, such as fact, fiction, or opinion, inductive and deductive reasoning, and supportive statements. Provided for each objective are activity suggestions, worksheets, and reference materials. (DB)
