Research has shown that over one-third of the students in regular classrooms are visual-spatial learners. Anecdotally, it is estimated that three-quarters of gifted children are visual-spatial. They take great intuitive leaps. They have highly active right hemispheres, enabling them to see the big picture. They often see the answer all at once in a great, "A-Ha!" They find step-by-step learning tedious.

This session will focus on strategies for teaching these learners. All details are in the flyer.
