    What is SEARCH?

    SEARCH is a division of Loudoun County Public School's Gifted Education Program.  It is a classroom-based program for all students in Kindergarten through 4th grade.  The SEARCH teacher works in the classroom to present lessons and activities that encourage questioning, higher-level thinking skills, and creativity.  

    The SEARCH curriculum is based on problem solving and founded in gifted education research.  The curriculum spirals developmentally through five components: perceiving, reasoning, connecting, creating, and evaluating.  Each grade level learns about each component at increasingly more complex and abstract levels.  These components will be presented to students in K-4 as "keys" to critical thinking.
