AIM Talent Development
The AIM Talent Development Program will provide opportunities for the development of student potential in students from diverse cultural, racial/ethnic, socio-economic, linguistic backgrounds and students with disabilities. Gifted Specialists, who are itinerant teachers with specialized training in gifted education, and classroom teachers, will provide instructional opportunities.
The Gifted Specialist will design and deliver thinking skills lessons on a weekly basis as whole group instruction. In an effort to maximize program effectiveness, the Gifted Specialists will provide direct instruction at all Title I elementary buildings and consultant based support for the remaining sites. The lessons allow the Gifted Specialist to introduce rigorous curriculum and complex problem solving skills to classrooms to ensure that all students are provided with a platform for developing, nurturing, and displaying talent and potential.
