Summary
From two internationally recognized experts in the field of gifted education comes this timely exploration of how best to nurture a child's unique gifts, and set them on a path to a happily productive life in school and beyond. What is intelligence? Is it really a have or have not proposition, as we've been led to believe? Are some children just destined to fall behind? Dona Matthews and Joanne Foster answer those questions with a resounding No! In Beyond Intelligence, they demonstrate that every child has the ability to succeed with the right support and guidance. But how can parents provide that support? Matthews and Foster proceed from the assumption that knowledge is power, offering parents an information-packed guide to identifying a child's ability, fostering creativity, and bolstering effort and persistence. Using case studies and anecdotes from their personal and professional experience, they explore different ways of learning; the links between creativity and intelligence; and how to best to provide emotional and social supports. They offer critical advice on how to work co-operatively with schools and educators, and address how to embrace failures as learning opportunities. Drawing on the latest research in brain development and education theory, Beyond Intelligence is a must-read for today's parents and educators
