This year I will be helping teachers integrate technology into the core curriculum. The students will be exposed to websites, apps, and innovative devices to help them create, produce, problem solve and collaborate with each other. Students and teachers will be using iPads, laptops, projectors, document cameras, and Smartboards regularly in the classroom.
What are we learning in GT?
1st Grade Differentiated Curriculum - Patterns
Patterns help organize our lives. Students will experience activities that will help organize their thought processes throughout life. Students will become pattern detectives, pattern creators, and pattern solvers. This all-in-one curriculum will pique students natural excitement and interest in discovery. They will discover the patterns around them in literature, arts, and science and gain a lifelong desire to learn.
2nd - 4th Grade Differentiated Curriculum - Chromatography
This unit focuses on one of the most important techniques in chemistry, chromatography, as well on initial understandings of the particulate theory of matter. Evidence is a key idea in this unit and is central to all science.
It also occupies center stage in forensic science, criminal investigation, and the courtroom. This program was developed by the Great Explorations in Math and Science (GEMS) program at the Lawrence Hall of Science and tested in classrooms nationwide.
