and was ceated to assist with parent's understanding of the middle and high school Howard County programs.

Instructional Seminars, Curriculum-based Enrichment Units, and 4/5 G/T Math classes are among the major activities you will find occurring in the Gifted and Talented Program at Rockburn. Please see GT Overview Part 2 (just above) for this year's Instructional Seminars and Curriculum-based Enrichment Units by grade level.

 

The Curriculum-based Enrichment Units are dedicated to expanding and accelerating classroom curriculum and allow for flexible grouping (based upon ability level) depending upon the topic covered during any particular 10-12 week period. Enrichment units in social studies, science, language arts and technology are some of the areas covered. These groups usually meet twice a week for 45 minutes.

Instructional Seminars are groups formed by students with a common interest in a topic preselected by the GT department at Rockburn. Students in grades two through five have at least two per grade level. Students sign up to participate in these activities which usually meet during recess once a week.

The GT 4/5 math class provides enrichment combined with acceleration. Upon successful completion, these students will be set up to take pre-algebra in the sixth grade and Algebra I/DA in the seventh grade. Please see Mr. Polack's math class homework page or Mrs. Louzan's math class homework page {or you may access the corresponding Canvas pages] for much more info about the GT math program at Rockburn.
