The Interactive Discovery-Based Units for High-Ability Learners, for grades 6—8, provide teachers with opportunities to use exciting and challenging units in their classrooms. These engaging curriculum units culminate in authentic performance situations that provide students with open-ended opportunities to demonstrate academic understanding. Each book in the series contains tiered lessons that teachers can easily modify to meet individual students' needs.

Order in the Court: A Mock Trial Simulation gives students the opportunity to conduct a trial based on a classic fairytale in order to develop their courtroom skills. After developing the necessary vocabulary, students participate in the trial of Ms. Petunia Pig v. Mr. B. B. Wolf. Students not only learn the concepts, but they also learn valuable teamwork and time management skills. The unit culminates in a full mock-trial enactment.
