           What is the
  Integrated Curriculum Model?

           It combines
3 different Curriculum Models
that have proven successful with
   gifted and talented students.
   An Overarching Concept- Reading, reflections
    and discussions provide students with opportunities
    to create and construct meanings for key concepts.
    This allows for cross curricular connections

   Advanced Content- Pre Assessments allow
    students the opportunity to show mastery of
    concepts and skills in content areas. Teachers are
    able to compact the curriculum and guide students
    through advanced content at a more rapid pace.

   Process/Product- Self-directed learning allows
    students to explore a topic of personal interest.
    They construct knowledge and apply it to products
    that are high-quality.
