School:
The WCPSS AIG Program provides differentiated educational services that extend and enrich the Common Core State Standards by offering instructional and curriculum
modifications that promote student engagement through challenging cognitive tasks designed to integrate and develop critical and creative thinking skills in the student’s identified
area(s) of giftedness.
The regular education teachers and the AIG teacher work collaboratively to provide challenging, rigorous and relevant curriculum and instruction to accommodate a range of
academic, intellectual, social and emotional needs of gifted learners. Curriculum connections are emphasized through overarching concepts, issues and themes.
Differentiated curriculum and instruction in English/Language Arts (ELA) focuses on literacy including advanced content in reading, writing, listening, speaking and thinking.
Differentiated curriculum and instruction in Mathematics focuses on advanced content in real-world, multi-step higher level thinking problems.
Student evaluation will be based on teacher observations and may include assignments, rubrics, portfolios, projects, tests and other products.
