USC Capstone Events Coming To Santa Monica, Malibu:

Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District teachers are excited about delivering differentiated curriculum and instruction in their classrooms. But, what does that really mean for students?

Parents and community members are invited to find out at a session led by teachers who participated in a University of Southern California Differentiated Curriculum and Instruction Institute this year.

One session will be held in Malibu and one session in Santa Monica:

USC Capstone Event

Juan Cabrillo Elementary School

 30237 Morning View Dr., Malibu

Tuesday, May 26

5:30 – 7 pm

USC Capstone Event

Thursday, May 28

6:30 – 8 pm

McKinley Elementary School

2401 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica

A cohort of 20 SMMUSD classroom teachers participated in this Capstone project focusing on increasing rigor in classrooms across all levels and in every content area.

This instructional delivery method is rooted in Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) programs and introduces depth and complexity to students in order to uncover the full potential of every single learner.

USC faculty members Dr. Sandra Kaplan and Dr. Jessica Manzone provided the sessions and are providing ongoing support to members of the SMMUSD cohort.

Reservations are not required and both sessions are open to parents and community members of Malibu or Santa Monica. Join teachers and SMMUSD educational services administrators for either capstone events where teachers will share how they apply the elements of depth, complexity, novelty and acceleration within their classrooms.

For additional information contact, Dr. Irene Gonzalez-Castillo, Director of Elementary Curriculum and Instruction, at 310.450.8338 x. 70335.
