Curriculum varies widely by grade level and from year to year. Each grade level will participate in "Brain Work" activities such as analogies, matrix logic, critical thinking, fluency, prediction, and advanced math. All lessons in the PEP and GT classroom are geared toward the top levels of Bloom's Taxonomy: Analysis, Synthesis, and Evaluation.
Analysis - Breaking material into constituent parts, determining how the parts relate to one another and to an overall structure or purpose through differentiating, organizing, and attributing.
Synthesis - Creatively or divergently applying prior knowledge and skills to produce a new or original whole.
Evaluation - Judging the value of material based on personal values/opinions, resulting in an end product, with a given purpose, without real right or wrong answers.
Students also participate in a specific unit of study that differs by grade level and student interest.
