SEARCH is a division of Loudoun County Public School's Superior Learner Program. It is a classroom based program for all students in Kindergarten through third grade. The SEARCH teacher works in the classroom to present lessons and activities that encourage questioning, higher level thinking skills, and creativity.
The SEARCH curriculum is based on problem-solving and founded in gifted education research. The curriculum spirals developmentally through five components: perceiving, reasoning, connecting, creating, and evaluating. Each grade level learns about each component at increasingly more complex and abstract levels. These components will be presented to students in K-3 as "keys" to critical thinking. Check this page monthly for the "keys" that will help you unlock your child's SEARCH lessons and related information.
