A handy resource guide for all teachers, this book presents the rationale, goals, organization, and delivery of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM).

Reviews

Without a doubt, this book makes a contribution to the field. -- Cindy Miller, Curriculum Specialist The information in the book is extremely relevant. With the current demands for educational improvement, leaders in the field are searching for new, innovative means of helping students feel connected to their schools. -- Tricia Pena, Principal By the end of the book, I came to have a great respect for the authors
compassion and sense of social justice, which really shine through in their praxis.

-- Natalie Bernasconi, Gifted and Talented Education Teacher This book does a good job explaining the purpose, design, and use of the enrichments and their relationship to the general curriculum. -- Laurie Peterman, Instructional Facilitator
