What is learning in its various contexts?

The theme of "Developing Minds" is how
to make America smart through the
development of realistic expectations,
honoring accomplishments, meaningful
evaluations, academic rigor, critical
thinking and apprenticeship.

Art Costa, Editor provides a series of small articles
which develop the major themes in the book.
For example, thinking is defined in the
context of identifying, classifying,
establishing relationships, making analogies
and drawing conclusions.

There are a number of very important habits
common to great minds. Examples are persistence,
empathy, flexibility, meta cognition, precision,
questioning, application of past knowledge,
imagination and thinking independently.

Intelligence is defined in a number of classic
contexts. Examples are mathematics, verbal skills,
interpersonal skills, articulation of nature,
musical composition, spatial prowess and mastering
bodily functions.

Costa develops a profile of great teachers. The
profile includes the acceptance of student autonomy,
allowing dialogue, collaborating, coaching and
peer interaction.

Developing Minds is an important teaching tool for
teachers, parents, administrators and students. The
examples are topical and the systems approach is employed
throughout.
