Shelagh Gallagher: Biography
Dr. Shelagh A. Gallagher is a nationally recognized expert in gifted education and Problem-Based Learning. Shelagh was the first project manager of the Javits grant that produced the William and Mary science units. She then went on to direct two other Javits grants: Project P-BLISS (Problem-Based Learning in the Social Sciences) and Project Insights, each of which produced PBL curricula.
Shelagh served two terms on the National Association for Gifted Children Board of Directors and continues to serve in leadership roles for NAGC. She is a four-time winner of the NAGC Curriculum Division award for exemplary curriculum and has received the NAGC award for Article of the Year.
Her Problem-Based Learning Units are published by Royal Fireworks Press. It is an innovative, social studies program that fosters interdisciplinary study through data analysis and connections to literature. They immerse students in real-world, complex situations in order to learn core curriculum. The curriculum is closely-allied to the Common Core and National Standards.
Co-authored with Dana L. Plowden, Dr Gallagher’s Hull House PBL Unit was winner of a Curriculum Award from the NAGC in November 2012.
In March 2012 Shelagh Gallagher was awarded by the North Carolina Association for the Gifted and Talented for “her outstanding contributions to the education of the gifted and talented. For her lifetime advocacy for gifted learners at the district, and national levels, as a scholar, teacher, author, professor, consultant and parent and for her service as a former Board member of NCAGT and NAGC.”
