Hooray! This project is fully funded
New York City is one of nine states in our country that does not mandate gifted programs nor allocates the funding that is needed for them. My class of gifted and talented students are bright, young individuals who are creative, intelligent, and seek challenging activities. We are in the suburbs of Queens and our school has two gifted and talented classes per grade. Our students get excited over hands-on projects that challenge their thinking and promote group collaborations.
They are the future leaders of our next generation and I'm so excited to see what's in store for them!
Our gifted and talented students are avid readers. They read daily in our classroom and at home. We want to start book clubs based on student interests and reading levels. This helps them to discuss their reading and collaborate in reading groups.
We want our students to be involved in accountable talk and reading discussions to improve their reading.
We are looking to supplement our reading library with book club books based on interests and reading levels.
We have selected five titles that are based on reader's interests and we are so excited to get started. We are going to collaborate in our books as leaders, planners, recorders and more. We are taking initiative in planning our reading, leading discussions and answering questions about our reading. We want to create higher order thinking questions around our chapters and dive into close reading strategies. Please help us supplement our library with these book choices!
