Phelps Center for Gifted Education

SPRINGFIELD, MO-Phelps Center for Gifted Education Mission The WINGS Program (Working with the Individual Needs of Gifted Students) is designed for academically gifted students in grades K-8. The purpose of the program is to provide academic challenge and rigor, as well as address the social and emotional needs of the gifted student. Four groups of  4th– and 5th-grade students undertaking the “Mythology, Chess, and the Art of Learning” unit of study conducted by Gina Wyckoff, a Gifted Education Resource teacher and her colleagues, will read The Art of Learning; play chess (Attacking Chess, et. al); read myths and analyze the connections between them, the game, and their lives; and create a play derived from vignettes of their own autobiographical Art of Learning story.
