The process for creating, writing, and communicating Advanced Learning Plans at Webber Middle School is as follows:
6th graders - 8th graders utilize their G/T Honors English classes, the accelerated Math pathway, and/or Honors Science 8 as a primary source for their academic gifted programming. They will work directly with their content area teacher to select skills and performance goals to measure their growth throughout the year. Differentiated instruction, accelerated pacing, and strategic grouping utilized in these classes provides an excellent entrée into middle level gifted learning and preparation for high school Pre-AP and AP courses.
Additionally, we offer three pathways of exploration for students to complement their academic experience throughout the year, designed to help students evolve into their optimal self. These pathways will be supported through school offerings as well as independently driven outside of school. The pathways include: academic pathway, service-learning pathway, and/or the social-emotional pathway. Activities offered inside these pathways includes book studies, academic and social-emotional pop-up groups, support/enrich sessions with core teachers, occasional field trips, inter-school academic competitions, and other independently-driven suggestions for ways to improve academic and social/emotional well-being.
