Meeting the Needs of Highly Capable learners with Dr. Nancy Hertzog

Dr. Nancy Hertzog, University of Washington Professor, continues her partnership with Northshore School District! In both August and September, Dr. Hertzog planned and facilitated a full day of professional development for teachers, K-12, of advanced learners. Dr. Hertzog’s session focused on meeting the needs of gifted learners, mindful of strategies that not only support learning styles of those students already identified, but also those students who demonstrate exceptional achievement and have yet to be identified. To that end, Dr. Hertzog focused on structuring challenge through inquiry, choice and representation. Creating a classroom environment that involves interactions, social/emotional development, risk taking and equitable access to all learners.
