About the "Brain Builders" book series by Aristotle Circle:
The Brain Builders: Gifted & Talented workbooks are divided into seven individual workbooks and include 350 questions. Each workbook focuses on a specific question type from the Nonverbal and Verbal portions of the Gifted & Talented test, and includes:
The Performance Checklist: provides space to monitor a child's competency with certain question types and their general test-taking skills. This section also includes an area for instructors to provide written feedback.
Main Session: these sections focus entirely on an individual question type from either the Nonverbal and Verbal portions of the test. These sections are scaffolded to include two to five answer choices per question, with a total of 30 questions for the entire section. Nonverbal question types also include skill-building subtypes to help familiarize children with the fundamental skills needed to excel at answering NNATŪ-based questions.
Review: this section includes question types that children have encountered in previous workbooks. These sections help to keep children focused and familiar with question types they've already learned by providing additional—and increasingly challenging—exercises. These sections include a total of 10 additional questions.
Homework: this section includes additional exercises for the question type included in the Main Session. Includes a total of 10 additional questions.
Answer Page: these sections are available for instructors and parents to make certain whether or not a child has answered questions in a workbook correctly.
