Dr. Sarah Evans
This is an ongoing social and creative challenge group for talented and gifted or advanced learners, so they can socialize and try divergent thinking activities within a peer community.
*Summer Cohorts Coming Soon* There is a curious and creative genius in all of us but in this class we specifically nurture those abilities! Gifted and talented students and those with high abilities often thrive in environments with acceleration, challenge, and similar peer grouping. Research from the National Association for Gifted Children has shown that many high-achieving students are not given the chance to excel within traditional education programs. When grouped together as a cohort,...
These learning goals will differ from student to student, and all of them are ongoing and not final, but they offer a general understanding of the objectives. -Mastery of the content at a pace appropriate to the student's ability. -Depth of learning that enhances logic and critical thinking development. -Practice of metacognitive skills. -Build creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. -Develop a sense of self-understanding within a cohort of same-aged peers. -Evolve problem solving ability. -Foster independent and self directed learning. -Develop relationships with other gifted kids.
I have over 15 years of experience teaching elementary aged students, and hold both a Ph.D. and a M.Ed in education. I also have a current license to teach PreK through sixth grade. My educational background includes extensive training in teaching core academic subjects, gifted/creative logic, and all manners of pedagogical methods. Personally, I am a gifted thinker and I am guiding my two young gifted children through their own learning journeys.
A notebook (Either wide ruled or college ruled depending upon student's preference.) Pencil, and occasionally other school supplies such as paper, glue, tape, scissors and markers/colored pencils/crayons. PDF handouts will be posted in the classroom to print as needed for certain classes. Some classes may need additional, easy-to-find household supplies. *Please check the classroom each week to see what supplies are needed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Enrichment logic can often be challenging for some students. Students will be actively encouraged to think creatively so please make sure that your child understands this. The class pace will be faster due the nature of the gifted learning acceleration. This class is meant to challenge student thinking and it may be uncomfortable to experience that "brain stretch" at first. Children with gifted abilities often have concurring socio-emotional intensities in areas like over-excitability, emotional feelings, and high sensitivities. I will do my best to guide the child through these feelings if they arise in class, but a parent may need to help if your child needs some one-on-one attention. Please make sure you have read the list of topics, as some may be sensitive areas to your child. Stay in touch with me, during our Ongoing session, and I will be happy to help your gifted thinker in any manner that I am able.
