This new offering from the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented contains sample units written, taught, and revised by a group of Texas teachers.

A committee selected 13 units for inclusion in the new publication, all of which have been aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Featuring ready-to-use instructional units aligned with national standards, this book is guaranteed to save you hours of planning time. From a simulation of the Middle Ages, to producing a student-run magazine, to analysis of folk tales, to the science behind hot air balloons, the creative lessons in this book cover the core academic areas. These sample units are yours to adapt and modify to meet the needs of the students in your classroom. Use them to enrich the learning experiences of your gifted and talented children!
