Teacher Name: Gayla Cockrell
Purpose and Rationale: Small group instruction is a priority for Coppell ISD this year. We will utilize Breakout EDU to collaborate with small groups of learners to ensure growth in critical thinking, problem-solving and social skills. Breakout EDU increases engagement that allows students to work together, think conceptually, and utilize prior knowledge for deeper comprehension. Educators can create a student-centered experience to unlock their love of learning.
Strategy: This program will be utilized by the GT Specialist to provide enrichment for our question 4 learners, who need opportunities to stretch their thinking. This will be available to learners in grades 2 - 5 at all elementary campuses in the district. Critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication skills are fostered every time learners play Breakout EDU. This purchased plan will include hands on manipulatives and digital resources so that the activities can be utilized by small learners.
External Resources: None
Evaluation Summary: The GT Specialists will collaborate and reflect on learner experiences with Breakout EDU to utilize the program most effectively. We will meet quarterly to discuss the success and growth areas of the program.
