Creativity and Intelligence : Explorations with Gifted Students by Jacob W Getzels( Book )

37 editions published between 1962 and 1968 in English and held by 1,460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creativity is one of the most highly valued of human qualities. It is also one of the most elusive to systematic inquiry. Questions without end have been asked and re-asked. What is the nature of the creative process? Can creative potential be identified before creative achievement? What is the effect of family environment on creative development? What is the relationship between creativity and personality? Between creativity and intelligence? We ourselves begin with the last question, hoping that in the course of seeking an answer we shall throw light on the other issues. The concept of intelligence and the consequent intelligence measure have been used to define individual differences in cognition as if the concept and the measure encompassed the totality of the human mind and imagination. In school, and more recently in other areas requiring intellectual accomplishment, the IQ (or some cognate of it) has become the critical metric on which individuals are evaluated and sorted, given preferment or denied it. Individual differences in potential for productive thinking have been made synonymous with individual differences in performance on one or another of the numerous intelligence tests. We began our studies with few preconceptions and few presuppositions. We did not begin (as is our more usual preference) with an explicitly stated theoretical framework and a set of formal hypotheses. Instead, we permitted the behavior of the children and our own interests, whatever their conceptual foundation, to lead us from problem to problem and from question to question. That this procedure enabled us sometimes to come upon fascinating new vistas in the behavior of children seemed worth the cost of being often lost in phenomena without relevant explicit concepts to guide our observations

The practice of teaching by Philip W Jackson( Book )

14 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The common theme uniting this collection of six essays is the deceiving simplicity of teaching. Their underlying purpose is to uncover the complexity of the craft as embodied in the two dominant outlooks on educational thought and practice: the "mimetic" and the "transformative." Discussions are presented on five crucial issues: (1) on knowing how to teach; (2) the uncertainties of teaching; (3) real teaching; (4) the future of teaching; and (5) alternative outlooks on teaching. Observations are made about teacher student relations, the problems teachers face, and competing academic traditions. (Jd)

What is education? by Philip W Jackson( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most contemporary approaches to education follow a strictly empirical track, aiming to discover pragmatic solutions for teachers and school administrators. Jackson argues that we need to learn not just how to improve on current practices but also how to think about what education means in short, we need to answer Dewey by constantly rethinking education from the ground up. Guiding us through the many facets of Dewey's comments, Jackson also calls on a range of other philosophers to shed light on how a society does, can, and should transmit truth and knowledge to successive generations. Teasing out the implications in these thinkers' works ultimately leads Jackson to the conclusion that education is at root a moral enterprise

Varieties of giftedness in the classroom : studies of cognitive and psycho-sociological functioning in adolescents by Jacob W Getzels( Book )

3 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cognitive and psycho-social functioning of four categories of gifted children was studied. Two groups of adolescents showing different types of cognitive excellence (intelligence and creativity) and two groups exhibiting different types of psychosocial excellence (morality and psychological adjustment) were investigated using a wide variety of measures, part of which were especially developed for this research. Traditional methods of evaluating giftedness have divided children into categories of high or low intelligence, but results of this study indicate there are two other useful categories of cognitive functioning--"high iq without concomitant high creativity" and "high creativity without concomitant high iq." Those students representing these categories were found to be equally superior in scholastic achievement to the population from which they were drawn but the two groups differ sharply in value orientations, their effect upon teachers, their fantasy productions, their career aspirations, and were found to come from very different family environments.
