Awakening genius in the classroom by Thomas Armstrong( Book )

15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book maintains that every student is a genius, and the teacher's most important job is to discover and nurture the genius that exists within each student. Teachers are urged to look beyond the traditional understanding of what constitutes genius. Part 1 describes 12 qualities that go beyond traditional definitions of genius: curiosity, playfulness, imagination, creativity, wonder, wisdom, inventiveness, vitality, sensitivity, flexibility, humor, and joy. This section also examines theoretical foundations, looking at neurological, evolutionary, biographical, and phenomenological bases for the 12 qualities. Part 2 looks at how genius shuts down, focusing on the role of the home (E.G., emotional dysfunction, poverty, fast-track lifestyles, and rigid ideologies). This section also discusses the role of the school (testing, grading, labeling, tracking, textbook and worksheet learning, and tedium) and examines the role of the popular media (stereotypical images, insipid language, and mediocre content). Part 3 discusses how teachers can awaken genius in the classroom by reawakening the genius in themselves, providing simple genius experiences, creating a genial climate in the classroom, and knowing that genius is expressed in many ways. (Contains approximately 200 references.) (Sm)

What does it mean to a kid to be labeled attention-deficit disordered (ADD)? Or to have ''hyperactive'' added to the label (ADHD)?

Are we relying too much on medication for these kids and not enough on new perspectives on learning, child development, the child's socioeconomic and cultural background, biological and psychological research, and the learner's emotional and social needs? Armstrong urges educators and parents to look for the positive characteristics in learners who may carry the ADD/AD

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By looking at the positive strengths of your students with special needs, you can help those students flourish, ensure their success, and align their instruction to Common Core State Standards. One of our most popular authors, Thomas Armstrong, shows you the steps you need to take to establish a more favorable, productive learning environment for five special needs categories: (1) Learning disabilities; (2) add/adhd; (3) Autistic spectrum disorders; (4) Intellectual disabilities; and (5) Emotional and behavioral disorders. Explore the strengths, talents, and abilities of students with these special needs, and learn how to construct a positive day-to-day learning experience that fits the unique needs of each child. Armstrong explains why applying these strength-based concepts makes it easier to align instruction of special needs students with the Common Core State Standards. And he provides you with examples of how to teach and assess specific English language arts and mathematics standards for students with different special needs. Even if you rarely deal with special needs students, taking account of your students' neurodiversity is an essential new insight for your practice
