Transcript of Schoolwide Enrichment Model at JJH 2013

Schoolwide Enrichment Model at Judia Jackson Harris Elementary Charter School
Enrichment Clusters
All activity is directed towards a product or a service.

Students and teachers select the clusters in which they will participate.

Students are grouped across grade levels by interest areas.

There are no predetermined lesson plans. Clusters should be STUDENT LED!

Divisions of labor are used to guarantee that all students are not doing the same thing.

Type I Enrichment
Type III Enrichment
Students work to solve a real-world problem in an area of interest. These projects are long-term explorations, where students have the opportunity to act as first-hand inquirers.

Type III Enrichment Projects are open to all interested students. Approximately 70 students worked on a Type III last year.

Students meet with a facilitator once a week for 60-90 minutes. During this time, they receive training on problem finding, researching, surveying, connecting with a mentor, and product development.

Type I Enrichment
Exposes students to a variety of topics, disciplines, occupations, hobbies, etc. through guest speakers, books, websites, and videos.

Type I Enrichment opportunities are offered
school-wide, within the regular classroom, to students working on Type III Projects, during Enrichment Clusters

Type II Enrichment

Type II Process Skills are taught within the regular classroom, extracurricular opportunities, classroom visits by Enrichment Specialists, during Enrichment Clusters, and to students working on Type III projects.

Critical Thinking
"How to Learn"
Type I Enrichment Brainstorm
Your 5th grade class is going to study the Stock Market Crash of 1929, Hoover, Roosevelt, and the Dust Bowl.
