How can educators spark an enthusiasm for learning in young people? What can classroom teachers do to promote creativity and innovative thinking? In Enriching Curriculum for All Students, Second Edition, the authors present the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM), a groundbreaking instructional program that reaches all students through hands-on problem solving, high-interest activities, and cooperative learning.
The revised edition offers updated research and additional guidelines for implementing lessons to support differentiated and enriching learning opportunities for all learners. Demonstrating how teachers can shift from instructor to coach or mentor, and how students' minds, spirits, and values can be developed within an invigorating atmosphere, the authors focus on:
- Developing the talent potential of all students
- Improving academic performance through meaningful, enjoyable learning
- Fostering a reflective, growth-oriented staff
- Honoring ethnic, gender, and cultural diversity
- Involving students, parents, teachers, and administrators in decision making
This vital resource combines inspiration with practical methods and highlights the importance of a versatile and imaginative curriculum that gives all students the opportunity to reach their highest potential.
