Based on the belief that “a rising tide lifts all ships”, the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) is a proven plan for infusing a broad range of high-end learning strategies into existing school programs and standards-based reform initiatives. SEM helps educators and schools develop the gifts and talents of all students by using gifted education teaching practices, with all students. SEM places a premium on local school involvement, and the belief that all students are capable of developing their unique talents through the use of challenging, and enriching teaching practices. In the video, Joseph Renzulli and Sally Reis take viewers inside schools where they will observe the Schoolwide Enrichment Model in action and meet teachers, principals, and students who have benefited from this easy-to implement plan. Viewers will learn: specific strategies for modifying and differentiating the curriculum in the regular classroom in order to accommodate individual rates and levels of learning; a hands-on approach to three interrelated types of enrichment that focus on the application, rather than assimilation, of knowledge; ways in which student products and services can be brought to bear on authentic assessments.
