Enrichment offered to all at middle school


November 24, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

At Severna Park Middle School, the traditional attitude toward gifted children has been replaced by a school-wide enrichment program.

Enrichment Resource Teacher Anita Roberts says the school believes gifted behavior can develop in any student who has three traits: above-average ability, creativity and commitment to tasks.

Each student at the middle school may try his or her hand at a triad of enrichment activities: first, exploring topics through field trips, guest speakers and minicourses and specials; second, training in research skills, decision-making, problem-solving and communication; third, through investigation, students become experts in a real-life situation and produce an end result.

This month 60 students are working in the enrichment center during school.
