• Elizabeth School District Talent Development Model for

    Nurturing and Identifying Gifted Potential of Talent Aptitudes


    The Elizabeth School District relies on the basic constructs of the Renzulli Enrichment Triad Model to nurture and develop talent over time.  Renzulli suggests a relationship between specific sequential educational experiences within a school and the development of talent.  His model designates three sequential types of educational experiences:

    • Type 1 enrichment activities in a number of domains
    • Type 2 specific and advanced instruction in domains of interest
    • Type 3 experiences that provide opportunities for creative productivity that may lead to adult career contributions to benefit society

    This adapted version of the Enrichment Triad Model assists the district in its efforts to develop and identify specific gifted talent aptitude. 

    Type 1, 2, and 3 learning opportunities
