What AIG looks like at BCMS

AIG Services

At BCMS, the AIG Specialist works with classroom teachers to add enrichment activities to the regular classroom curriculum. AIG students are grouped in clusters in Math and English Language Arts to create an accelerated learning environment. In addition, AIG students attend weekly enrichment sessions for a minimum of 45 minutes. Through enrichment sessions, students will: 

  • Gain awareness of themselves as individuals who have unique academic and socio-emotional needs
  • Participate in activities that develop independent, critical, & creative thinking skills 
  • Develop independence in identifying and solving meaningful problems 
  • Begin developing mathematical reasoning and problem-solving skills that call for authentic application of concepts in non-practiced contexts
  • Develop their desire and ability to communicate intelligibly and creatively
  • Develop the ability to think critically about humankind and demonstrate social responsibility in a global community 
  • Develop the ability to collaborate effectively with diverse teams to accomplish a common goal 
  • Monitor one’s own understanding and learning needs and demonstrate commitment to learning as a lifelong process 
  • Apply higher level thinking by expanding concepts and skills in the following areas: Information Literacy, Media Literacy, and Technology Literacy
