Many parents wonder how curriculum and expectations change in G&T classes.
Students in G&T classrooms are expected to master the same curriculum objectives as their General Education peers. As in all PS 230 classrooms, expectations and instructions are differentiated to allow each student to progress academically with attention given to individual strengths and areas in need of improvement.
Below, you will find samples of work from 1st graders completing the same assignment in a General Education classroom and a G&T classroom. Note the similarities in curriculum standards for non-fiction writing. Note also the differences in scaffolding (i.e. the templates that the students are provided), vocabulary and volume of work.
