Join us as we explore how teachers and counselors facilitate book discussions designed to guide bright young people to self-understanding through high quality literature. We enjoy engaging lessons and activities to support students as they process their feelings regarding issues highlighted in the books and class discussion. Featured are examples of lessons and menus of questions for successful book discussions as well as enrichment activities to extend students’ learning. We examine this approach with whole classrooms, as well as with special populations of gifted students, including twice-exceptional students, culturally diverse students, and children and teens facing adversity.
