The G.I.F.T. consists of various teaching strategies that engage learners. The teaching strategies include gestures, inflection, fun, and teaching. Whole Brain Teaching ideals are also heavily infused into the G.I.F.T. This video briefly shows the strategies in action with first grade students learning the writing process.

NELLIE MAE EDUCATION FOUNDATION:

On October 9, 2013, Nellie Mae Education Foundation released a new Research Request for Proposals (RFP) focusing on competency education and other high-potential student-centered learning practices. The goal of this funding opportunity is to deepen our understanding of how, why, under what conditions, and for whom student-centered approaches to learning promote both higher outcomes for all students and the closing of learning gaps for traditionally underserved groups.

The RFP and supplementary documents are located here. Proposals will be accepted only through a web-based portal. You will need to create an account to access the portal. Directions on creating an account and submitting a proposal are included with the supplementary documents. If you have a problem accessing the portal, please contact Stephanie Cheney at [email protected] or 781.348.4240.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is 12:00 noon on Wednesday, October 30th. All questions about the RFP process or content should be directed to [email protected]
