My class is made up of an extraordinary group of students, a group of students that are the hardest subgroup to show academic growth!
Academic and Intellectually Gifted students deserve to have meaningful educational opportunities and grow in their learning.
As an Academic and Intellectually Gifted specialist, I help facilitate the learning of 35 gifted students in 4th and 5th grades. We focus on the areas of reading, math, and nonverbal skills. These students love learning and need the tools necessary to enrich their studies.
Many of my gifted students are from military families that have traveled all over the world. This project will allow my students to learn a skill that can help them become acclimated to a new city or town when they have to relocate.
Kids love to do things adults do! Captured Moments is a project that allows students to do a job many adults dream of...become a photo journalist.
Students will learn the art of storytelling through photo journalism.
They will take pictures like the professionals do using a variety of lenses made especially for iPads- a tool students are comfortable with! Students will use photographs they take to tell a story- just like the photojournalist of National Geographic, TIME, and many other magazines. We will have a guest speaker come and discuss the do's and don'ts of taking pictures and ways to have their images go from ordinary to extraordinary. Students will have a photography art show to display their work and tell their story.
