Purpose and Rationale: Small group instruction is a priority to 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.
Strategy: This program will be utilized by the GT Specialist to provide enrichment for our question 4 learners ("What do we do when they know it?"), who need opportunities to stretch their thinking. This will be available to learners in grades 2 - 5 at all elementary campuses in the district, including Denton Creek. 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.
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.
Estimated Completion Date: We will begin utilizing Breakout EDU immediately upon receiving the funds.
Items to purchase with grant money: Individual teacher use, $199.00. Includes: 1 Breakout EDU kit, 12 month access to games, Design Studio, unimited student accounts at one campus, student progress tracker and free webinars.
