  2. Joseph Renzulli Enrichment Triad Model Original Creation: • Developed in 1977 as a model for identifying gifted students, providing enrichment to them (creative products) • The Schoolwide Enrichment Model (Renzulli and Reis, 1985) is a systematic set of strategies for increasing student effort, enjoyment, and creative productivity. It has been used successfully, nationally and internationally […] as a guide for designing and implementing programs for gifted and talented students. • Application to any level of student: Purcell, J. & Renzulli, J. S. (1995). • In recent years the model has been expanded so that the successful practices • associated with high-level learning can be applied to all students and to all • schools in an effort to realize the lasting and real changes that are the goals • of current school reform efforts.

  3. Renzulli Enrichment Triad(Renzulli, 1977)

  4. Joseph Renzulli Enrichment Triad Model Level 1 Activities Level 3 Activities Level 2 Activities

  5. Lesson Planning- “Tier One” • “Level 1” Activities • Activate Prior Knowledge • Build Background Knowledge • Create a starting point

  6. Sample Level 1 Activities • K-W-L • Survey • Questionnaire • Vocabulary list • Think/Pair/Share • Poem/Song • Current Event • Film clip • Instructional Video • Article • Brainstorming • Discussion • Field Trip • Guest Speaker

  7. Lesson Planning- Tier 2 • “Level 2” Activities • Are content rich • Include skill acquisition • Give student practice • Allows teacher to gauge progress

  8. Examples of Level 2 Activities • Problem set • Reading activities • Writing activities • Steps in a lab • Study Guide

  9. Lesson Planning- Tier 3 • “Level 3” Activities • Allow student to demonstrate aptitude • Allow student to showcase abilities • Allows teacher to assess (see examples on Project Handout)

  10. Scenario- Language Arts: Level 1- Novel- A Lesson Before Dying, Ernest Gaines • Via internet, students bring in articles about the history of the death penalty, share cropping, Plessy v. Ferguson, New Orleans Bayou (homework or library day). Students present their articles to class. Accommodation- Teacher presents articles (read and discuss- have students summarize) • Students watch movie-Dead Man Walking and take notes on pro/con death penalty issue (divide paper into pro/con) Accommodation- teacher prepares activity for students to follow and take notes during movie

  11. Level 2- Novel 1. Teacher introduces novel (audio book) 2. Students complete activities during reading- See teacher/student guides- internet sites: 3. Skill acquisition- literary analysis: • Questions- plot, setting, conflicts, imagery, • characterization, • themes, use of dialect

  12. Level 3- Novel (After a traditional assessment- M/C test, essay) Level 3 Product-(see products handout) Students make a scrapbook, PowerPoint, mandala, sound track, scene adaptation/skit

  13. Mini Writing Lesson- tiered • Following day(s) Product- Level 3- Students write their own paragraph using adjectives, vivid verbs, concrete nouns, figurative language that will be showcased in their presentation portfolio. Student highlights in different colors each type of description and provides a key • Day 2+ Skill acquisition- Students create sentences with rich description (using skills. Students trade papers and find each others’ adjectives, vivid verbs, concrete nouns, figurative language • Day 1: Introduce skill- Teacher lead- read an essay. Discuss skills- i.e. descriptive writing or detail. Add activity for the skill. ie Students pick out adjectives, vivid verbs, concrete nouns, figurative language

  14. Science Level 3 Activities Level 2 Activities Level 1 Activities

  15. Science- Nuclear Chemistry Example Level One Activities- • Pair and Share • Teacher lecture/class • discussion

  16. Science- Nuclear Chemistry Level Two Activities: • 1. Problem Set • 2. Research of possible Nuclear Chemistry applications : • Carbon-14 dating • Nuclear Power Generation • Historical Nuclear Accidents • Nuclear Weapons • Radiotherapy • Nuclear medicine (drugs) • Food irradiation

  17. Science- Nuclear Chemistry • Level Three Application: • PowerPoint presentation • Poster • Live skit • Business proposal • Science Fair Project • Research Project

  18. History/Language Arts Transcendentalism- see handouts for lesson examples of Level 1, 2, 3 activities

  20. Lesson Planning Advice from Veteran Teachers • Never stop experimenting with lesson ideas and teaching approaches. Be continuously reflective about your teaching. If something does not work, be very honest with yourself about the possible causes. Restructure your lesson and try again. Always be flexible and willing to change.Patrick AllenCanton Intermediate SchoolCanton, CTGrade Levels: 6-8 • I wish I had known: that when I was enjoying the lesson, the kids were having fun, too. how to recognize the signs that I needed to alter the pace of a lesson (glazed expressions, fooling around, fidgeting, etc.). That quantity of work and assignments did not equate to quality.Sue RitchieNathaniel Morton Elementary SchoolPlymouth, MAGrade Levels: 3-5 • I wish I had known: As you complete a lesson, take notes on what worked, what you can change and on what didn't work. Next time, you'll have a good idea on what needs to be done to improve the lesson. Shannon Cegielski
