Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM)

The School Enrichment Model is an inclusive teaching model for the development of talent and gifted. SEM is based on an expanded vision of the concept of giftedness, aimed at promoting educational approaches that address the special educational needs of all students, particularly gifted and twice-exceptional students, characterized by the coexistence of high potential and one or more vulnerabilities, in an inclusive perspective.

Starting from the A.S. 2023-24, MILE decided to implement the SEM Model in primary school under the guidance of Dr. Lara Milan who provided intensive training on the SEM Model to the entire teaching staff.

SEM Approach and Teacher Training

SEM seeks to enhance students’ educational journey by integrating the curriculum with dynamic and captivating learning experiences, where they tackle real-world challenges and nurture their creative potential. Crafted by Dr. Milan, these activities are tailored to each student’s strengths, interests, and learning styles. Guided by Mentors – professionals, parents, teachers, and artisans – who generously share their expertise and tools, students engage in problem-solving and adopt the mindset of emerging professionals..

The students, supported by their teachers, try their hand at solving real problems, learning to think and act like novice professionals. SEM’s Enrichment Model serves as a pivotal compass, guiding students towards a deeper understanding of their capabilities. This self-awareness empowers them to make informed academic and career decisions, bolstering their self-esteem, confidence, and capacity for future planning. By fostering a sense of community involvement, SEM cultivates an educational system wherein society at large contributes to shaping the aspirations of the next generation.
