  • The Fort Bend ISD Gifted and Talented Academy provides challenging learning opportunities and instructional strategies to differentiate for the academically gifted. Instruction is designed to enhance self-awareness, self-efficacy, problem solving and the learning of critical and creative thinking skills that empower students to make important connections through problem-based, interdisciplinary study and investigation.

  • Concept-Based Teaching and Learning


    Through Concept-Based Instruction, rigor is embedded in understanding the universal concepts, as interdisciplinary connections are a logical result.  Because many gifted children are global thinkers, using a universal concept is a more natural way for them to learn.


    This short powerpoint provides parents an understanding of the Instructional Philosophy at the FBISD Gifted and Talented Middle School Academy.
