This is a time after school when the 5th and 6th grade GATE students of Brandenburg get together, talk, and are challenged. This time is in addition to the differentiated instruction that is already occurring for each student during their regular class room day. The students work with critical thinking games, perplexing puzzles, unique literature, and other exciting thought-provoking activities. Recently, we had the opportunity to attend an exciting production of “The Wizard of Oz” at Casa Manana after using literature circles to read and discuss the novel. These students meet on select Wednesdays from 4 pm to 5 pm. If you are the parent of a GATE student and are interested in learning more about the Brandenburg GATE Club, please feel free to call the school at 972-708-3100.
