Developing and Implementing Enrichment Clusters: A Great Way to Start SEM
March 20, 2021 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT| Free
The University of Connecticut’s Renzulli Center for Creativity, Gifted Education, and Talent Development is excited to offer a free Saturday series of one-hour interactive webinars on topics of interest to educators.
Enrichment Clusters are an organizational component of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model that allows non-graded groups of students who share a common interest to come together during specially designated time blocks to pursue these interests. All teachers are involved, and they serve as coaches and “guides-on-the-side” rather than traditional presenters of information. Teachers explore possible cluster topics they would like to facilitate through the use of an interest questionnaire, and clusters frequently involve community resource persons who may have experience in particular topic areas. This session covers guidelines, professional learning activities, scheduling, examples of enrichment clusters in action, and several suggestions about possible cluster topics derived from our research.
Presenters: Joseph Renzulli and Sally Reis
