This 36 lesson unit was designed for gifted students in grades seven and up. The first major goal of the unit is to facilitate for students the process of discovering and exploring intellectual interests in depth using Kaplan’s (2009) depth and complexity model as a framework. The second major goal is to introduce various problem-solving strategies and provide opportunities for students to engage in problem solving using the problem-based learning method as described by Gallagher (2009). By the completion of the unit, students will have invested over 10 hours in class researching their topics and 12 hours creating an authentic product to demonstrate what they have learned. The unit was designed using the: (a) National Common Core Standards for Language Arts; (b) NAGC's Learning and Development Standards; and (c) numerous unit specific objectives based on research and best practices in the field of gifted education.
