Welcome Educators & Professionals!
Gabriele Educational Materials and Systems are GEMS! Developed over years in a busy classroom and then refined with theory and research, GEMS programs were created to meet the needs of the K-14+ education community: teachers, students, administrators and parents. They have widened and evolved to meet goals of the modern workplace. GEMS programs:
- accelerate learning,
- develop academic, inter-personal and social skills, and
- build community spirit.
GEMS methods are multifunctional and learner-centered. Aligned with cutting edge theory and research in systems thinking, systemic change and systemic renewal, they combine the best of multiple approaches - including directive and cooperative, top down and bottom up. The programs are appropriate for children and adult learners. Incorporating unique visual displays and rapid reviews, GEMS RoundTable, effectiveness training, English Language Development (ELD) programs and user-friendly semester plans will benefit any learning environment!
