Renzulli Learning personalizes talent development for each student, giving students the tools and resources to increase engagement and achievement.
Renzulli Learning Key Components:
The Renzulli Profiler uses strength-based assessment to identify a student’s top three interests, learning styles and expression styles, providing a roadmap to increase student engagement and academic performance.
Once students complete their profiles, they will have access to their very own personalized databases of enrichment activities! They can explore by category or by interest area. Students light up with excitement when given the opportunity to challenge themselves and direct their own learning.
The Renzulli Learning lesson-planning tool enables teachers to create highly engaging learning opportunities and assignments that empower students to achieve at higher levels for better academic results. Teachers can easily differentiate instruction to engage students through teacher created assignments, projects and lessons. Inquiry based learning is facilitated, enabling students to investigate, create, and answer questions using Renzulli Learning enrichment activities or tasks assigned by the teacher.
Grouping and Reporting Tools
Renzulli Learning makes learning easier as teachers can both group and report on their students, focusing on their shared strengths, interests, learning styles, and expression styles. Working together, students are able to develop advanced executive function and learning skills, and teachers can easily monitor their progress.
Renzulli Learning’s Project Management module provides a challenging and interest based vehicle for focused and engaging investigations, shared learning, and collaboration. Renzulli’s Wizard Project Maker can be teacher-driven and assigned or completely independent for the students.
Personal Success Plan
Designed specifically to help middle and high school students develop critical thinking skills, the Renzulli Personal Success Plan shows students how to create tangible academic and career objectives, as well as to develop action plans for achieving those goals.
Renzulli English Language Learning (ELL) Accelerator
When Renzulli Learning is used as an English Language Learning (ELL) Accelerator, teachers are able to easily implement best practices in ELL instruction, including personalized learning, peer assisted learning, and collaborative grouping. Students complete the Renzulli Profiler in their native language, which identifies their interests, expression styles, and learning styles. The students’ Profile results can be viewed by their teacher in English.
There is no additional cost to use Renzulli Learning as an ELL Accelerator.
Creativity Assessment and Development
The Cebeci Test of Creativity (CTC) is a digital creativity assessment of
the four domains in creativity: fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration. The CTC is included with Renzulli Learning and provides schools with an easy and cost-effective creativity assessment solution. Together, the CTC and Renzulli Learning System are the world’s first complete solution for creativity assessment and development.
The CTC, which is currently in field testing, is included with Renzulli Learning at no additional cost.
