Abstract:

Many world-class thinkers and creators have been concerned about the state of education in the United States. Discover their thoughts on how children really learn and what teachers must do to optimally tap children's latent abilities.


  • Reveals what world-class thinkers and creators have said about how children really learn and what teachers must do to optimally tap their latent abilities
  • Explains the twelve capacities emphasized by these thinkers and creators, including love of learning, creativity, curiosity, playfulness, imagination, wonder, tolerance, reverence for life, appreciation of beauty, honoring diversity, celebrating individuality, and developing compassion, and how these capabilities must serve as the foundation for any future educational reform efforts
  • Provides examples of teachers and classrooms where the educational ideas of these thinkers and creators are currently being practiced, demonstrating that their prescriptions are not merely fanciful ''pie in the sky'' dreams
  • Includes resources including organizations, books, magazines, websites, and videos that enable readers to take action
