What is F.L.A.M.E.?

Florida Law Regarding Gifted Education: Florida Board of Education Rule 6A-6.03019, FAC

FLAME (Fostering Learning Abilities in Marion Education), aka Gifted, is designed to enable exceptional students to acquire and apply the skills and abilities needed to enhance academic achievement through experiences which provide enrichment, in-depth learning, and /or accelerated study of academic curriculum requirements. Students who are gifted have learning needs that go beyond what is traditionally offered in the regular classroom. The nature of your student's abilities, demonstrated or latent, requires differentiated learning experiences and opportunities for them to maximize his or her potential. I will be adjusting the depth and quality of your student's experiences while adjusting the pace to meet each individual's needs.

This course will include, but not be limited to the following:

  • higher-order thinking skills
  • independent learning
  • application of acquired knowledge
  • high-level communication
  • career exploration
  • leadership
  • self-awareness
