    Description
    Academic Stretch is the middle school component of the Rockwood Gifted Program. This component is offered in grades six through eight for students who meet district criteria for the gifted program. Academic Stretch is offered in conjunction with Compacted Challenge Language Arts (see above) and enables students to engage in interdisciplinary, thematic studies that focus on real-world issues and challenges. These challenges involve advanced-level content and open-ended investigations within the broad areas of change, survival and the nature of systems. Forensics, inventions, natural disasters and the stock market are examples of specific units that are studied. All units in this program are designed to promote active student engagement in learning and developing skills in critical and creative thinking, information processing, problem-solving, communication and leadership. Time management strategies, current events, literature, high-end technology, community resources and service projects are also incorporated into the Academic Stretch curriculum, as are skills and concepts taught in Compacted Challenge Language Arts classes.
