KMS GT Program for 2013-2014Rhonda TharpWhere We’ve Been…
  • GT students were grouped in a tutorial class for various reasons
  • Academic discussions
  • Problem – based activities
  • Creation of 2 products (fall, spring)
  • Social development
  • Emotional support
  • For teachers to monitor personality traits, and for counselors to offer guidance (for traits like perfectionism, anxiety, depression, or unmotivated)
  • 2012
  • GT students were given a personal interest survey to help them focus on a particular topic of research.
  • Contracts, checkpoints, materials and resources were provided to facilitate students and the creation of their products.
  • Students were also given multiple intelligence surveys and personality surveys to see where they fell on a spectrum of interests, abilities and personality traits.
  • Group discussions and activities were provided throughout the year.
  • 2012
  • We used the Autonomous Learner’s Model as a guide for the program.
  • Students selected a topic in the fall, conducted research, posed questions and developed a product to present to their peers.
  • In the spring, students selected from a list of research topics to collaborate in a group and presented their findings to their peers.
  • Where We’re going
  • Using data gathered from student surveys and teacher surveys, we are moving away from grades and contracts.
  • Using the ideas from Creating Innovators, we are moving away from the students developing 2 products.
  • Instead, the teacher will facilitate a “lab” approach for creativity and innovation using collaboration with peers, problem-based activities, discussions and research.
  • 2013
  • The goal is to have a culminating project presentation at the end of the year. No grades will be taken. (helping the community, inventing something new, creating a website/wiki, etc)
  • The GT CP teacher will help the students develop “play, passion and purpose.”
  • Through class discussions, class surveys and interest surveys, problem-based activities will be created. Students will brainstorm, collaborate, research and apply/create a solution to the problem.
