• PULL-OUT RESOURCE PROGRAM


    The Pull-Out Resource Program is found in schools that have a significant number of identified gifted students.  In this program, identified gifted students are pulled out from the regular education classroom and receive supplemental instruction by a gifted certified specialist.  Specialized instruction is offered based on the student's specific area(s) of gifted identification in Reading and/or Mathematics.  Gifted learning activities incorporate higher-level thinking, abstract thought, creative thinking, logical reasoning and problem solving.  Program features include Depth and Complexity, Problem-Based Learning, Defined Learning, Socratic Seminars, Shared Inquiry through Junior Great Books, S.O.L.E. (cooperative research), Zaccaro tiered math units and In the Balance-Algebraic/Logical Reasoning Puzzles.
