Joseph Renzulli Enrichment Triad Model
  • Original Creation
  • Developed in 1977 as a model for identifying
    gifted students, providing enrichment to them
    (creative products)
  • The Schoolwide Enrichment Model (Renzulli and
    Reis, 1985) is a systematic set of strategies for
    increasing student effort, enjoyment, and
    creative productivity. It has been used
    successfully, nationally and internationally
    as a guide for designing and implementing
    programs for gifted and talented students.
  • Application to any level of student Purcell, J.
    Renzulli, J. S. (1995).
  • In recent years the model has been expanded so
    that the successful practices
  • associated with high-level learning can be
    applied to all students and to all
  • schools in an effort to realize the lasting
    and real changes that are the goals
  • of current school reform efforts.

Lesson Planning Advice from Veteran Teachers
  • Never stop experimenting with lesson ideas and
    teaching approaches. Be continuously reflective
    about your teaching. If something does not work,
