Enrichment in Core Academic Subjects

  • To provide challenge in core academic subjects, Horace Mann teachers use:

    • Pre-assessment and interest inventories to create flexible groups.
    • Small groups with focused instruction, activities and assignments to reach different levels of need (special emphasis on use of higher order thinking skills).
    • Math menus, challenge packets, learning centers and independent projects (including use of technology) to challenge advanced, motivated learners
    • Differentiated homework
    • One-to-one use of iPads for personalized learning
    • Brightlink systems in all classrooms for enhanced learning experiences
    • Starting in 3rd grade, we can skip students into 4th grade for Math when needed.
