Gifted Advisory Hosts Guest Speaker, Anthony Washington

The Colonial Heights Gifted Advisory Committee
Presents  Anthony M. Washington                   

CREATIVE MINDS                                                             
(Developing Creative Ability in Advanced Learners)

Mastering content is not sufficient for the 21st Century job market.  In addition to content knowledge, our nation’s top employers desire a workforce that is equipped with creative, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.  These traits are not necessarily innate natural abilities.  Rather, they are learned competencies that require systematic training and development. 

This session will focus on the skills and dispositions found in creative experts and will provide guidance on ensuring an environment conducive to creative development for your child.  The session also will discuss the development of creative expertise within academic and artistic domains.
