Affective education has been promoted to meet the social and emotional needs of gifted students in recent years. In this session, the speaker will share his experience in implementing the school-based pull-out affective programme for S.3 and S.4 gifted students. The objective of the programme is to let students read through the lives of the characters on the biographies and experience the difficulties and obstacles that they had encountered. The speaker will also share the gist of preparing the lessons as well as leading group discussions and activities.
