In Teaching for Intelligence, Second Edition, Barbara Presseisen brings together a collection of intelligence theories about an instructional approach focused on inquiry, critical thinking, problem posing, and problem solving that can have a powerful influence on both student and teacher learning and performance. These insightful articles inspire educators to examine their own perspectives about the nature of intelligence, standardized testing, and curriculum requirements. The material also demonstrates the positive impact that this instructional method can have for children from poor, depressed, or immigrant backgrounds. School leaders and teachers will find answers to critical questions such as: What does teaching for intelligence actually mean? Who is the intelligent learner? What do educators and scientists have to say about teaching for intelligence? Updated with current research, this insightful resource suggests a vast world of thought, inquiry, and wisdom to inspire and educate all learners.
