Oak Grove Middle School

PARAGOULD, AR-Char Edwards Green, a gifted and talented school facilitator at Oak Grove Middle School, is using The Art of Learning as a tool to help develop a lesson plan to meet the affective needs of gifted 10-13-year olds.  By focusing on the  book’s principles “Using Adversity” and “Making Smaller Circles”, she is teaching students to reach deeper and giving them a framework for understanding what quality learning and performance is.  She is using the book in the context of lessons relating to: recognition of abilities and limitations, the setting of appropriate goals, development of the ability to succeed, establishment of priorities and goal setting, development of learning skills, and cultivation of risk-taking as it pertains to mistakes and failure.
