Feeling Good--and Gifted, Too!
Jensen, Amy; And Others
A gifted student faces daily problems that are two-fold in nature: (1) internal--those that are posed by an often critical understanding of self, and (2) external--those that are posed by daily interpersonal relationships with family, friends, and others. This curriculum offers an approach to these two essential areas of need: "You" focuses on the uniqueness of individuals, self-acceptance, and a constructive approach to experiencing and expressing a wide range of feelings; and "You and Others" focuses on the gifted students' communication and social skills to ensure positive and effective interpersonal relationships. The curriculum is organized into two levels. For each level, the "You" section has objectives in the areas of uniqueness, feelings, and goals; and the "You and Others" section has objectives in the areas of communication, interpersonal relations, and stress management. Learning activities are suggested, and some worksheets are included. (JDD)
