PET-Program Granville Countys PETS program nurtures all students in Kindergarten through third grade in four thinking skills: divergent, visual, convergent and evaluative, using the Primary Education Thinking Skills books from Pieces of Learning. In every elementary school, the AIG specialist teaches whole class lessons while the classroom teacher records observations about the students responses to the lesson. Based on these observations and the work completed by the students during the lessons, the AIG Specialist with the classroom teacher choose the top students in that thinking skill. These students have an invitation sent home to their parents, asking for permission to pull them out in a small group.
PETS-AIG GCS values gifted students as diverse learners, whose individual needs require identification and services that provide rigorous and enriching academic and intellectually nurturing opportunities to attain their highest potential in our globally competitive world.
