Anyway, the students who are rated as gifted in these areas are then given a
choice of seminars and exploratory extra project type classes, ranging from
science, writing, to photography and painting. This semester I am teaching a
group of 7 students, mainly those designated non - verbally gifted. We are
documenting the murals in our school, interviewing the artists, and with the
help of a parent, photographing the murals. The students will share this
information on a web page. We have been evaluating web pages for layout,
content, just about anything you can think of. Tomorrow the students will be
interviewing one of the artists. Last week we sat down in front of his mural
and developed questions to ask him. The students will then write up the
responses. It is a real growing process for all of us... I have never made
and posted a web page, am learning how to teach a little about photoshop... it
is a big undertaking! The kids are very enthusiastic... they come to school
early so we can use the computers in the library to examing web pages from
other schools and museums.
I must say that not all the kids who would benefit from this program are in
it, but I feel our school is recognizing and encouraging the visual and non
verbal learners. A step in the right direction?
