Boonsboro Elementary School provides gifted services to students who have been identified as gifted in Reading, Language, Mathematics, verbal, and nonverbal ability. Students meet several times a week with the Gifted Education Resource Teacher and work independently and with their classroom teachers on advanced and extension activities.
Gifted students are given opportunities to test out of grade level math and reading content. Compacting the curriculum in this way enables these students to pursue above-grade level material that both interests and challenges them as learners.
A very important aspect of Gifted Education is that it requires students to take responsibility for their own learning. They must be organized and able to work independently. Not only will these skills positively impact their ability to work on and do well on special projects in Elementary School, but these skills will pave the way for future success in the upper grades and in the workplace.
The world is changing and it’s changing fast. We really can’t imagine the knowledge and skills our children will need as adults. We can, however, be sure that if students can find and understand new information, think deeply and creatively about it, and use a variety of problem solving strategies with it, that they will be well poised for future success.
