A vast world of thought, inquiry, and wisdom for educating all learners.
This remarkable collection features an interview with Howard Gardner and includes contributions from such luminaries as Robert J. Sternberg, Robert R. Spillane, Arthur L. Costa, Linda Darling-Hammond, Dorothy Strickland, Joseph S. Renzulli, and Joyce VanTassel-Baska. The insightful articles encourage educators to examine their perspectives about the nature of intelligence, standardized testing, and curriculum requirements. Readers will be able to evaluate critical questions such as:
- What does teaching for intelligence mean?
- Who is the intelligent learner?
- What do educators and scientists have to say about teaching for intelligence?
Updated with current research, this thought-provoking resource looks closely at current classroom instructional practice, students' intellectual development, and how educators view students in the learning process.
