Program This week 2nd through 5th Grades are continuing their studies in reading fiction texts. Students are reviewing the "Fiction Mountain" which describes how the action builds in a novel. First Grade is continuing its study of Mealworms for two more weeks.
In addition to my teaching duties with GT students I am also in the process of building a body of evidence file for each student placed in the Magnet Program or the GT Program. Students have been placed based on scores on a cognitive test (NNAT, CogAT, or an individual IQ Assessment). Teachers are currently doing Scales for Gifted Students (SIGS) for each of these students and I will follow that with the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) which will give an academic skill level for them. Utilizing these three pieces of data qualifying students may be identified as HGT or GT.
