Type II Small Group Activities

  

Type II activities occur with smaller groups of students who show interest in a particular subject or activity.  This is organized through the collaboration of the enrichment teacher and the classroom teachers.

 

 

Type III Enrichment

 

Type III  Enrichment provides opportunities for students to participate in advanced level investigations focused on student identified problems which may extend beyond the walls of the school.  Students conduct research and create products in order to solve an identified problem within their area of interest.

 

The purpose is to allow students to become firsthand inquirers and social activists, while doing what practicing professionals do in the delivery of products and/or services.  Typically, Type III Enrichment investigations involve resources and help from adults other than the classroom teacher.
