Gifted & TalentedEnrichmentThe Enrichment program at Frenchtown School is based on The Schoolwide Enrichment Model developed by Joseph Renzulli and Sally Reis. The Schoolwide Enrichment Model focuses on enrichment for all students through high levels of engagement and the use of enjoyable and challenging learning experiences that are constructed around students' interests, learning styles, and preferred modes of expression.The goals of the Frenchtown Enrichment program include...
- Provide a broad range of Enrichment experiences for students in order to expose them to new topics and ideas and help introduce them to new interests and passions.
- Provide advanced follow-up activities for students based on their strengths and interests.
- Provide opportunities for students to develop their talents.
The Schoolwide Enrichment Model promotes student participation in three types of enrichment activities (Type I, Type II, and Type III) in order for students to pursue independent investigations on special topics of their interests.
Type I Learning Activities
Students are exposed to a wide variety of disciplines, topics, occupations, hobbies, persons, places, and events that may or may not be covered in the regular curriculum. The goal of Type I activities is to stimulate new interests that individuals or small groups of students may choose to pursue through intensive study.Parents, students, community members! If you are interesting in presenting about a topic or interest please complete this survey.
Type II Learning Activities
Students learn and develop advanced research skills and thinking skills such as critical inquiry, problem solving, and creative thinking. Students also learn methodological skills related to the area of study.
Type III Learning Activities
Individual students or small groups of students engage in research investigations in an area of personal interest. These learning activities allow students to think, feel, and act like practicing professionals. Students conduct research, gather data, solve problems, and create a final product that is shared with an appropriate audience.
