Using the Schoolwide Enrichment Model in Mathematics
A How-To Guide for Developing Student Mathematicians
Using the Schoolwide Enrichment Model in Mathematics: A How-to Guide for Developing Student Mathematicians applies the teaching and learning strategies of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) to the math classroom. Based on more than 40 years of research and development and used in schools around the world, the SEM approach focuses on promoting higher level thinking skills and creative productivity. Using this approach in mathematics, this new guidebook promotes the use of the Mathematical Practices outlined in the Common Core State Standards as the underlying processes and proficiencies that should be developed in students. Teachers learn how to create a culture of enjoyment, engagement, and enthusiasm for all students, and in particular gifted students, while developing students who think and act like mathematicians. Easy to read and use, the book incorporates many practical suggestions, including views from the classroom and sample activities from NAGC-award winning curriculum to motivate and challenge students.

M. Katherine Gavin, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor at the University of Connecticut, where she serves as the math specialist at the Neag Center for Gifted Education and Talent Development. She is the principal investigator and senior author of two national research projects that involve the development of advanced mathematics units for mathematically talented students in grades K-5. The units in Project M3: Mentoring Mathematical Minds, developed under a Jacob K. Javits U.S. Department of Education research grant for students in grades 3-5, have won the NAGC Curriculum Division Award for 6 consecutive years. Published by Kendall Hunt, they are being used in all 50 states as well as internationally.Dr. Gavin and her colleagues also received the 2009 Research Paper of the Year award from Gifted Child Quarterly, the leading research journal in gifted education in the U.S., for an article that reported the research results of Project M3. Dr. Gavin is currently directing Project M2: Mentoring Young Mathematicians, a National Science Foundation project whose purpose is to develop and research advanced curriculum for primary students. This project recently received the 2010 NAGC Curriculum Division Award. Dr. Gavin is also a coauthor and project director of a new middle school textbook series, Math Innovations, published by Kendall Hunt. She received the Early Leader Award from NAGC in 2006.A former mathematics teacher, department chair, and district coordinator, Dr. Gavin has written numerous articles and book chapters on gifted mathematics education, is a member of the writing team for the NCTM Navigations series, and has coauthored a series of creative problem-solving books. In addition, as a consultant, she provides professional development for teachers and administrators in school districts across the country and presents annually at national and international conferences.
Frances A. Karnes is professor of curriculum, instruction, and special education at The University of Southern Mississippi. She is widely known for her teaching, research, publications, innovative program developments, and service activities in gifted education and leadership training.
Recognizing and responding to the fact that technology is changing the educational landscape quickly and with a dramatic impact, Using the Schoolwide Enrichment Model With Technology is a solution-oriented book that offers guidance and ideas for educators as they seek to integrate technology into productive learning environments for their students.,Gifted Child Today, 9/17/17
The authors recognize differences in teacher styles, interests and abilities. They also realize teachers are working within vastly different structures with many types of students. Even if the reader is not familiar with the Schoolwide Enrichment Model, this book could prove beneficial.,Michael Hernandez,MiddleWeb, 1/16/20
