AIG by Grade LevelGrade 3The 3rd grade Explorers Model provides an opportunity for the AIG teacher to collaborate with third-grade teachers and to provide a variety of in-class experiences for any student demonstrating need. Students who demonstrate high performance will participate in small-group enrichment activities in language arts and/or mathematics with the AIG teacher. Participation in Explorers does not guarantee identification in the WCPSS AIG program.Grades 4-5Services for WCPSS AIG identified students include differentiated curriculum and instruction in language arts and/or mathematics within the general education setting. With the support of the AIG teacher, classroom lessons will be differentiated through content, process, and product. Through the Co-teaching and Collaboration model (push-in), AIG teachers will provide in-class instruction to extend and enrich grade level standards. The AIG teacher will support students who demonstrate need with pull-out and/or further enrichment and extension opportunities. Services vary depending upon course offerings and student performance.Grades 6-8For Middle Grades, the AIG teacher collaborates with the classroom teacher or works with students in small groups on differentiated projects that parallel the curriculum taught in class. The AIG teacher meets with students about once per week.
