The series includes an observation tool and protocol to help teachers recognize children with outstanding potential who have often been overlooked; Classroom materials for connecting science and texts (both fiction and nonfiction) through the use of questioning strategies that promote higher level thinking; family science take-home packets to help families become more involved in their child’s learning; and professional development modules to support teachers’ abilities to recognize and nurture potential in their classrooms.
