Course No. ED437A, ED537A

In this book, Armstrong encourages a renaissance of thinking about the true meaning of genius.  He defines human genius from the standpoint of education as “giving birth to the joy in learning.”  Starting with a fresh look at how we observe genius in ways other than IQ tests, Armstrong creates a list of twelve innate qualities which describe the generative, expressive manifestation of genius that we can see (or restore) everyday in a classroom.
Armstrong provides remedies that call for teacher modeling of their own joy of learning.  He provides a list of practices to provide simple genius experiences in the classroom.  His suggestions help to counter the often-damaging effects of scripted curriculum, and standardized grading and testing along with other factors that degrade the love of learning. He provides a rich repertoire of research and specific, realistic and practical resources to develop your own plans to encourage the expression of genius in your classroom.
