Gifted Education International, v26 n2-3 p169-177 2010
The Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) has been one of the most widely used models in the education of the gifted in Brazil. It has inspired the political and pedagogical project of the Centers of Activities of High Abilities/Giftedness recently implemented in 27 Brazilian states by the Ministry of Education. In this article, our experience in implementing the SEM in Brazil will be described with respect to: (a) steps followed for identifying gifted students based on the model, (b) Type I, Type II, and Type III enrichment activities that have been carried out, and (c) information concerning professional staff development. Research data regarding the SEM implementation will also be provided.
