• PULL-OUT RESOURCE PROGRAM


    The Major Work Pull-Out 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 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.
