Storyboard Text

  • Gifted kids are sitting in classes focused on universal learning and basic proficiency 
  • SCGM groups gifted kids into classes based on their ability.
  • America is falling behind other developed countries and our schools aren't producing high achievers
  • With SCGM, gifted students can dive deeper into curriculum using differential instruction
  • Identifying a child as gifted is complicated and our society labels everyone as having special gifts
  • In the SCGM class, teachers are able to teach matching the child's gifting
  • Christie (Barnett) Pomeroy
  • With SCGM, high expectations are set for all students and are given more opportunities for exposure
  • Gifted children from poor socioeconomic status are often overlooked by many 
  • SCGM focuses on every student along with making it easier on the teacher because she can plan for a smaller range of learning levels. 
  • There is so much focus on meeting the needs of low achievers, but students with high-ability aren't getting their needs met
  • Since NCLB, there has been very little political concern about gifted students.  From my personal experience, I agree they are too often overlooked!
