Gifted and Talented
Diamond Fork Middle School is partnering with Nebo’s Gifted and Talented specialist to test all students for academic giftedness. All children have strengths. Schools and parents have many ways to help children discover their individual strengths and talents such as fine arts and sports programs. About 6% of the population will test gifted, but many children remain under-identified. Our hope is to make sure that we offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of all of our students including students who may need gifted enrichment. Students will be tested using the CogAT test by Cheri Campbell, Nebo’s Gifted and Talented specialist over the next two weeks in their English classes. Students typically find the test different from other assessments and fun. The CogAT test has a verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative section and can be finished in one class period.
Pod time is where students stay with their core teachers (Math, Science, and English) for extra help or enrichment. Every student has 3 Pod Times each week.
E-TIME IS WHERE STUDENTS CAN CHOOSE FROM A VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES INCLUDING KARAOKE, DRAMA GAMES, OUTSIDE TIME, OR OTHER ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES. IT IS ALSO WHERE STUDENTS WHO ARE BEHIND IN WORK OR WHO NEED TO REDO OR RE-TAKE A TEST MAY BE PULLED INTO A STUDY HALL OR CLASSROOM TO WORK WITH A TEACHER.
Team Time is only on Wednesdays. During Team Time students will engage in activities designed to bring the entire school closer as a team.
