Giftedness and class rankings predict first-year college success, and academic rigor develops wise, honorable, cultivated citizens for life. Our three-year experiment requiring critical reviews of non-fiction e-books continues. Unforeseen benefits emerged from a collocation with our competitive Vocabulary initiative. Memoria exercises build camaraderie and sharpen reading and writing.
