Transcript of GEP Meeting Prezi 2011-2012

GRC What GRC is and is not... GRC is NOT a reward for children who behave well in class and turn in perfect work. Chelsea Intermediate School Mission Statement: Chelsea Intermediate School will cultivate a culture that inspires learning for all students, hold high expectations for all members of our learning community, integrate curriculum to ensure that learning connections are established and that student growth is our top priority. Rather it IS an academic necessity for children who learn differently. GRC is NOT a program for children with exceptional grades. Rather, it IS a program for children with exceptional abilities and potential. Gifted Resource Classroom GRC is NOT fun for fun's sake. Rather, it IS often fun for the sake of challenge and learning. GRC is NOT for children who are "better" or "more special” than other children. Rather, it IS a program for children who think and learn differently from the norm. GRC is NOT a test of what the child does know. Rather, it IS an opportunity for the child to go beyond into what he or she DOESN’T know. GRC does NOT address only academic needs. Rather, it ALSO addresses social and emotional needs and validates gifts and talents. Guiding Questions How do needs influence design? How does the environment affect design? How do you balance form and function in design? What role does creativity play in design? What would happen if a structure had no function,
but had excellent form? Affective Needs Creative and Critical Thinking Open-ended Questions Transformations Brainstorming SCAMPER Goal- show growth in flexibility, fluency,
originality, elaboration Contact Information Mr. Norris:
