GT Cluster Classrooms
Research indicates that GT students need to be with intellectual peers for at least part of their educational experience each day. Because the thought processes of gifted students are often significantly advanced, they may feel alienated and lonely at school. Spending part their educational day with intellectual peers broadens their sense of self and strenghthens confidence in their abilities. Additionally, gifted students need to advance academically at a pace that matches their abilities. Interaction with intellectual peers gives them the challenge and support they need.
At Liberty Elementary we place all identified GT students in one grade level cluster team with highly trained GT teachers, committed to providing advanced content, process, and product opportunites for students as needed. Our GT cluster classroom model provides students with many benefits including a faster instructional pace, higher discussion level, and increased opportunites for creative and challenging work. Our goal at Liberty is to ensure that every student receives an excellent educational experience, designed to help them reach their potential. Liberty GT Cluster Classrooms are one way in which we meet the unique social, emotional, and academic needs of our identifed GT students.
