The Infusion Project is a set of 8-week courses* developed around high-interest topics and designed for high-ability and gifted learners. Each class is designed to be self-paced, meaning students can complete each weekly lesson whenever one class period a week is available to them in school. The goal is to provide content engaging and challenging enough that students want to do more than the allocated time per week and continue to work on their own. To that end, instructors have included extension activities for many of the courses that will take a student beyond that one lesson if he/she desires that depth. While students will work on their own, which requires a good deal of independence, they will use the CDLS Schoology platform to interact with others in discussions and sharing of work product.
The goal is to provide feedback, not grades for these courses. Many high ability students struggle with how to respond to constructive feedback and revision. A primary focus of the Infusion Project is to provide a platform that will challenge thinking and allow students an opportunity to work through new concepts. The school may choose to provide participation grades or points if desired.
*Infusion Classes are not semester long courses, but are offered only during 2nd and 3rd Quarters. These require a separate Site Coordinator account . If you are interested, please contact Paula McGuire (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ashley Dalton (email@example.com).
