fall project
Fall Project
  • We will begin rolling out our fall project this week, they will be due after the Thanksgiving recess [more info will follow]
  • The GT program follows a PBL (Project-Based Learning) format, with an overarching theme and the students allowed to design a project of their own choice
  • This type of project allows the students to take ownership of their learning in an area of interest to them.
  • The theme for our fall project is:

“Try Something New”

[i.e. learn a new hobby or skill you’ve always wanted to try and share it with the world!]

social emotional needs of gt students
Social & Emotional Needs of GT Students
  • We will be focusing more on the social & emotional needs of the gifted student this year
    • Learning how to work more in teams/groups
    • How to communicate with others more appropriately when working with a partner or in groups
    • Pushing students outside of their comfort zone via instant challenges
    • Discussing ways to deal with stress, etc.
  • You will notice that “GT” will now be showing up on report cards
  • I will be giving grades based on class, group, and individual activities this year, as well as projects
