Gifted Service

Last Updated: 6/4/2020 2:02 AM

Services for elementary and middle school students:

For gifted service in math, students are clustered into a mixed ability classroom, with other boys and girls gifted in mathematics, and taught daily by a gifted intervention specialist and/or a regular classroom teacher who has on-going professional development in gifted instruction. Students will be encouraged to think critically and apply strategies to real-world situations. Students will be exposed to differentiated instruction including curriculum compacting and problem-based learning.

For service in reading/writing, gifted students are clustered in a mixed ability classroom and taught daily by the gifted intervention specialist and/or a regular classroom teacher who has on-going professional development in gifted instruction. Students will have opportunities to think and write critically about what they read while strengthening their vocabulary.

Differentiated instruction addresses Ohio's learning standards while appropriately meeting the students' needs as gifted learners. This instruction includes pacing, breadth, and depth of concepts and skills.
