Every day in the Gifted and Talented classroom is an adventure in learning! We share our best learning with one another in so many different areas: divergent thinking (brainstorming, categorizing in multiple ways and combining ideas), convergent thinking (finding, organizing, reflecting on and putting together clues to determine the correct answer), visual thinking (looking at things in different ways, looking for patterns, moving things around in your mind) and evaluative thinking (determining problems and brainstorming possible solutions considering different perspectives, developing criteria and judging the best answer). We engage in thought provoking dialogue and use the Six Thinking Hats and Depth and Complexity frameworks to guide our thinking and learning.
I get to work with a different grade level of fantastic students every day as the Gifted and Talented teacher! Each day I look forward to the excitement and challenges of working with this special group of students. We learn from and guide one another and get to see our thinking grow!
I cannot wait to see where the year takes us!
