G.I.F.T. is a template for a road map leading to thoughtful thinking and reflection. Teachers can take their students through this process on literally ANY classroom activity--from group work, team building, projects, research, problem solving, etc.
This template fosters an increase in students who identify their thinking behaviors or emotions as they work their way through life's problems. Outcomes include increased use of metacognition, meta-emotional intelligence, and a mind which is better prepared to tackle problems and obstacles in the future. :)
