AIG/Enrichment Services - Wendy Hinson

Academically or Intellectually Gifted (AIG) or enrichment services provides support and fosters creative thinking through rigorous curriculum to students. Giftedness, academically or intellectually gifted students perform, or show potential for performing, at high levels of accomplishments when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment. Gifted students require differentiated educational services beyond regular educational programming. Enrichment/AIG services are based on a student’s Beginning of Grade (BOG) assessments, End of Grade (EOG) tests, and/or teacher observation. Students are provided services through small group pull out sessions and/or teacher inclusion push-in services.

The focus of the enrichment program is to provide challenging instructional activities through differentiated curriculum and instruction to students who demonstrate high academic potential. Students complete project-based learning activities, participate in book studies, and are given opportunities for critical thinking. The small group sessions are held once a week with curriculum from all areas. Enrichment Opportunities at Benvenue:
