Fostering Understanding Sparking Innovation Originating New Ideas

    The FUSION program serves identified fourth and fifth grade students who demonstrate a need for gifted education.  Students enrolled at Rosa Lee Carter participate in the new school-based, collaborative gifted model.  They will remain at their home school for gifted education services, rather than being transported to an off-site location.  They will also benefit from receiving services throughout the week, rather than working with a gifted resource teacher on one designated day. 

    The new delivery model provides for differentiated support in the areas of language arts and math. Students will also be engaged with other enrichment activities that focus on both social-emotional development and a thematic unit of study.

    In the two-year cycle of curriculum for FUSION, leadership and innovation are the overarching themes.  These themes are relevant to the Virginia Standards of Learning and to life outside of school.  Embedded in each of these themes are opportunities for gifted learners to develop 21st century skills through the 5 C's: Critical thinking and problem solving, Creativity, Connections, Communication, and Collaboration.
