2015 GT INDEPENDENT STUDY PROJECTS
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?
K-2nd Grade Differentiated Curriculum - Discoveries
The unit leads students to
evaluate and discover what they are truly made of. Students investigate why discoveries from the
past are important to the present and the future. Students will also look at how discoveries
are made by studying those made by historically significant explorers and
3rd - 4th Grade Differentiated Curriculum - Choices
The unit helps students
become more aware of the choices they make every day. Every choice has a consequence, whether it is
positive or negative. By participating
in the wide variety of activities, students evaluate their own choices and gain
a lifelong desire to learn. This unit will allow students to organize,
categorize and reevaluate choices that they make on a daily basis. These activities will help students grasp the
importance, responsibility, and implications of their decisions. Choices
will also explore decision-making strategies.
