  10. Challenging Units for Gifted Learners: Teaching the Way Gifted Students Think, English

The English book includes units that ask students to develop strong personalities for their main characters while writing mysteries, study Freud's psychoanalytic theory and then analyse a classic novel using what they've learned, focus on writing from a specific point of view and increase their appreciation for poetry.
