Transcript of Shelby Elementary GEP

GRC What GRC is and is not... GRC is NOT a reward for children who behave well in class and turn in perfect work. Shelby Elementary School School Beliefs 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 does change occur over time? How does change affect our lives? Why must things change? In what ways do things change? Affective Needs Creative and Critical Thinking Open-ended Questions Transformations Brainstorming SCAMPER Goal- show growth in flexibility, fluency,
