In general, the lessons are broad and not specific to the needs of gifted learners. They are very similar to resources I have found in many other books. I also would not classify the lessons as “teacher friendly.” Fonseca repeatedly mentions supporting her lessons with additional readings and the use of bibliotherapy but offers no suggested resources. The book also lacks a glossary, an index, and adequate examples. Using the lessons effectively would require quite a bit of additional work on the teacher’s part. Most lessons end with this Assessment statement: “Evaluate the students’ responses based on appropriate standards.” Determining those standards and developing a rubric is again left to the teacher.
My Final Assessment: I’ll keep looking for the perfect all-in-one affective curriculum for gifted students. In the meantime, I’ll continue to piecemeal mine together one quality lesson at a time.
