S.C.O.P.E. Curriculum Overview
Barrow County Schools serve students identified as gifted in the SCOPE Program (Synthesize, Collaborate, Originate, Produce, and Evaluate). The SCOPE Program provides gifted students with learning opportunities that they would not otherwise experience in the regular classroom. Within the program, students are exposed to a wide variety of studies presented at appropriate levels and pace. Gifted students receive stimulation in the areas of creative thinking and problem solving with opportunities to interact with their intellectual peers. Special instruction is offered to students identified as academically gifted.
The goals of the S.C.O.P.E. Program are to allow intellectually gifted students to:
Demonstrate critical thinking, problem-solving and higher level thinking skills and apply them to everyday situations
The SCOPE curriculum is designed to challenge students by extending/enriching and/or compacting/accelerating the Georgia Performance Standards and includes mastery of complex systems of knowledge and development of thinking skills. Within the gifted curriculum, the students have opportunities to explore advanced content and develop products and advanced learning skills.
