• The  5th grade FUTURA Program at Emerick will investigate Systems in 2019-2020

    The Loudoun County FUTURA program seeks to enhance and to develop the intellect of fourth and fifth-grade students who have been formally identified as generally intellectually gifted. They will all be immersed in investigations that correlate the themes Structures and Systems to the Virginia Standards of Learning Objectives for the core content areas.

    The program stresses higher level thinking skills that include analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Differentiation of instruction is key in planning the learning activities to meet the individual needs of the exceptional students. The FUTURA teacher provides opportunities for the students to stimulate curiosity, engage actively in problem-solving, discuss current trends and issues in society, work cooperatively, create, debate, and to promote special interests.
