Gifted and Talented use Critical Thinking Skills at SJHS
A group of students at Springville Junior High was taken out of classes on October 7th and October 8th for an activity requiring critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership skills. The purpose of this activity was to “develop communication and problem-solving skills by working in groups, using higher-level thinking skills, while having fun in the process,” said Mr. David Hansen, Gifted and Talented supervisor at SJHS. The students participating in the activity were given a problem, and they had to solve the problem using common items. According to Mr. Hansen, the success rate of this activity was excellent.
