My gifted pull-out classroom is a place where students are challenged to think creatively and problem solve. The students need additional enrichment that cannot always be provided in the regular classroom setting.
My students are bright and excited to learn.
They are full of ideas and questions and are waiting for the opportunity to think outside the box.
They attend an urban public school with students representing 25 different nationalities, and they do not have many available resources in the classroom. They deserve the same opportunities and experiences as students in more affluent districts.
Breakout EDU sessions engage students in critical thinking, collaboration, communication, community, diversity, and creativity. During a Breakout session, the goal is to discover the codes to a variety of five to six coded locks through written and hidden clues.
Each team member is critical to the success of Breakout sessions, and the students’ individual strengths and diverse experiences are seen in a positive light.
Students gain information through close reading and observation, and they use patterns, coding, equations, and problem solving to break into locks.
Trial and error becomes a repeated retrial-and-error cycle as they tackle a series of challenging puzzles to break into the final locked box. Once the final lock is opened, the feeling of accomplishment it priceless and their perseverance is rewarded!
