Envision is a real-world, project-based independent study program specifically designed for gifted and talented students. Each Envision grade-level program contains a series of four multidisciplinary projects, one for each school quarter, to span the entire school year.
Challenging students at the highest levels of thinking, Envision incorporates student rubrics containing specific measurable objectives. While being challenged, students are simultaneously inspired by numerous opportunities for freedom of choice that lead to personalized end results. Every student, at the culmination of each project, will have created an in-depth portfolio, a project display board, and a project exhibit. In addition, each student will give a formal classroom presentation, and an informal presentation at an expo event. To round out each project there is also a teacher assessment and a student self-assessment.
Every Envision project differentiates by content, process, product, ability level, interest, and learning style. The Envision projects provide guidance and structure, yet allow for a tremendous amount of freedom of choice within that framework.
Envision can be used in any educational setting. It is flexible enough to be used in a regular education classroom containing a gifted cluster, a self-contained gifted classroom, or a gifted pullout program. It is also very successful in schools that do not identify gifted students.
Envision is being published as a series of programs for multiple grade levels. Please click on an available program to read about its projects and view sample pages.
Program project topics are revealed approximately one month prior to each program's publication. If you would like to be notified or receive pre-order information about upcoming programs, please let us know.
