Nonfiction & Curriculum Enrichment Outline
Enrichment includes experiences or activities that go above and beyond the “regular curriculum” requirements. Enrichment will occur in the regular education classroom and teachers will adapt and differentiate their instruction and expected product outcome to meet the academic, physical, and psychological needs of their gifted and talented students.
Here at the elementary we are fortunate to have teachers who excel in teaching above the state tested curriculum. All teacher work fluently together to create lessons based on Common Core goals that meet both interests and abilities at all grade levels. Students who are identified Gifted & Talented will participate in classroom projects across the curriculum.
Below is a list of topics the students work on with other students to be presented during their Gifted & Talented meetings or class lessons.
