New kinds of Smart Ch 1 | Guy Claxton and Bill Lucas
20th Century schools presumed that students' intelligence was largely fixed. 21st century science says that intelligence is expandable – and in a variety of ways. New Kinds of Smart argues that this shift in the way we think about young minds opens up hitherto unexplored possibilities for education.
For the first time ever, New Kinds of Smart brings together all the main strands of research about intelligence in one book and explains these new ideas to practising teachers and educators. Each chapter presents practical examples, tools and templates so that each new strand of thinking can be woven into their work as teachers and into their lives as learners.
