The WW-P G&T programming fosters a love of learning where a student's passion can be explored. Rather than labeling students, their academic abilities, needs, and interests are identified in order to provide appropriate opportunities to help them develop into lifelong learners. We are committed to a model that values differentiated instruction in which classroom teachers work to tailor instruction, content, and assessment to match student ability level. To that end, the G&T specialists work in classrooms with classroom teachers to provide additional support for high-end instruction. In addition, for 4th and 5th grade students G&T programming provides enrichment opportunities called MAGIC. This stands for Motivation, Ability, Grit, Innovation, Creativity. MAGIC is open to ALL students interested in participating during one to two recess periods a week.
G&T programming also addresses the unique social and emotional needs of children by promoting self-understanding, awareness of needs, and cognitive and affective growth. Students may work in groups outside of class to further this growth as determined by their interests, abilities and needs. The intent of all G&T programming is to honor the "whole child, every child" in developing student competencies that forge lifelong learners.
