JEFFERSON CITY, MO. We are working with Sue Winter, the Gifted & Talented Education Specialist, Division of School Improvement who heads up the state affiliate for the NAGC. We donated books to the organization’s New Teachers conference, to the Webster Groves school district, to primary programs, and to each of the NAGC board members. Sue organized teacher discussion book groups around The Art of Learning—participants are poised to begin applying the concepts in their classrooms and one school will launch a student discussion group in the beginning of 2010. Sue additionally posted information about the JWF in the Missouri Department of Education newsletter and sent a letter via this state department to the professional department committee. We have begun collaborating with the two Educational and Gifted Services Coordinators for the Missouri public schools to integrate the book’s principles into classrooms.
