Green Elementary Shares Learning Strategies with Washington School District

Green Elementary Academics and Athletics Magnet School welcomed teachers and administrators from Washington state’s Bellevue Unified to observe and learn how to “extend” learning for their students. Visitors from Bellevue Unified observed Socratic seminars along with the use of Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) icons that are designed to foster critical, complex, and creative thinking in grades K-5. Through Green’s philosophy of differentiated instruction and a rigorous, strategic approach to learning, the school provides an opportunity to meet the individual needs of students and stretch their ability to think in complex and abstract ways. Pictured here, Mrs. Sylvia Anderson leads her 4th grade class in a Socratic seminar. For more information, contact Principal Bruce Ferguson at (619) 460-5755.
