Description

The CLEAR Curriculum, developed by the University of Virginia’s
National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented, is an evidence-based
teaching model that emphasises Challenge Leading to Engagement, Achievement,
and Results.


In Fiction and Nonfiction:
Language Arts Units for Gifted Students in Grade 4
, students will read an
analyse short stories and write their own short story in the fiction unit. In
the nonfiction unit, students will study nonfiction (and creative nonfiction)
texts to examine how writers use many of the same devices to tell nonfiction
stories. Students will read a variety of texts and will write their own
memoirs.


These units focus on critical literacy skills, including reading
diverse content, understanding texts as reflections of culture, and finding
bias in fiction and nonfiction.
