PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY

 The ENGAGE program is designed to provide students with enrichment and  intervention opportunities in an educational setting. The acronym represents characteristics of the program.  

E - Enrich

N - Navigate

G - Generate

A - Analyze

G - Grow

E - Excel

The E.N.G.A.G.E. curriculum allows students a choice of courses based upon their gifts, talents, strengths, needs, and interests. The enrichment opportunities nurture and reward students, providing them with options and alternatives for becoming a lifelong learner.

The curriculum framework is designed by Bristol Tennessee City School teachers using Tennessee State standards. Each course is rigorous, hands-on and provides opportunities for higher order thinking and problem solving skills.      

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

ENGAGE is divided into two main components: REMEDIATION AND ELECTIVES.

REMEDIATION: The remediation component is mandated by the Tennessee State Department of Education. Students who fall below grade level proficiency in reading and math are required to take remediation courses. Once a student raises their performance level, they will transition into elective courses. Therefore, all students should complete elective course selections.

ELECTIVES: Student enrolled in elective classes will be able to choose multiple courses throughout the school year. Electives will be taught daily for a 30 minute block. Elective courses offer each student opportunities to explore new areas of interest or to study a particular area in depth.

Electives may also provide avenues to tailor a child’s specific needs. In the elective portion of the curriculum, courses are offered in the following areas: language arts, social studies, math, science, computer studies, health, physical education, visual arts, performing arts (instrumental and vocal music, dance) and media. These courses are highly motivational and give students the opportunity to study selected subjects.


Directions to Select Elective Courses

Engage courses are split into three grade level sections (K-1, 2-3, and 4-6). When selecting elective courses, find the student's grade level section and prioritize each course (1 being first preference and the highest # being last selected course). There are limited numbers of seats per course. Courses will be offered in 5 or 10 week sessions. If students do not receive their top elective choices during the first or second session, they will likely have the opportunity during the third, fourth or fifth session to take to the course. Upper grade students will have priority of course selections over the lower grade students.
