What is Search?
 

The SEARCH program focuses on thinking skills and is designed to foster a classroom environment that encourages students to develop an excitement for learning and discovery.  SEARCH teachers work within the classroom and offer lessons to kindergarten through third grade students.  These lessons are organized under the following headings: perceiving, reasoning, connecting, creating and evaluating.  During the lessons the  classroom teacher makes observations to gain insight into the students' various skills, strengths, and learning styles.  Both teachers work collaboratively to recognize and develop the potential for excellence in each student. 

 

Additional goals of the SEARCH program include the following:

 

--  Stimulate each student's curiosity, by providing opportunities for questioning, thinking and creating.

--  Differentiate the learning activities in the curriculum to meet individual needs of students with special interests, strengths and challenges.

--  Provide in-service programs
