Written by internationally renowned educator and researcher Robert Sternberg, this book is based on Sternberg's research-supported theory that students need to develop analytical, creative, and practical thinking abilities in order to acquire successful intelligence. It addresses the notion that many educational programs seem to develop people's intelligence in only one area-- analytical, and that students need all three to be successful in life. Chapter topics cover understanding successful intelligence; successful intelligence in life and in school; teaching for analytical thinking, creative thinking, and practical thinking; framing triarchic instruction and assessment units; and a comprehensive illustration of lessons for teaching for successful intelligence. For use as a reference or primer by all teachers of all grades.

This essential and aspirational text is aimed at all beginning teachers whatever your training route, age phase and setting. It explicitly adopts and builds on a new metaphor for teachers' professional learning as interplay between the body of public knowledge and the practical wisdom of teachers within a particular school setting. It also accepts that 'telling' you how to teach is ineffective; you need to 'become a teacher' because it involves identity and practice. Inquiry-based critically reflective learning with a clear focus on the learning of pupils is proposed as the core strategy by which you can build your knowledge and skills to become an outstanding teacher. Core topics, including planning, inclusion, teaching, assessment and professional development, are tackled in an accessible and refreshing way, using key research informed evidence. The focus is relentlessly on 'learning' rather than performance, in order to support you becoming an excellent professional teacher, rather than a competent technician, who makes a difference to learners, colleagues, schools and policy. Think of this book as a temporary or additional mentor, challenging you with different ways of thinking about learning and providing strategies to guide your professional learning. “It takes 10 years or more to begin to be a brain surgeon, but sometimes we get 1-3 years at most before we are allowed to work with children’s brains as teachers. So we need inspirational teachers and this is the focus of this compact, powerful and insightful book. It is wonderfully designed around five of the most critical dilemmas in our classrooms: belief vs. ability; autonomy vs. compliance; abstract vs. concrete; feedback vs. praise; and collaboration vs. competition. The power of the book is that it illustrates the new move to focus on learning power – and such a focus permits every student to become smarter through effort and deep practice as they struggle with the high-challenge learning activities – in the presence of inspirational, impactful and passionate teachers. The perfect book for those who want to make most of their opportunity to enhance students’ brain power.” John Hattie, Director, Melbourne Education Research Institute

"I strongly recommend this book to people working in the area of intellectual disabilities...It may open new vistas that are not always available in the traditional disability literature. It will especially challenge psychologists working in this field."--Journal of Policy and Practice in Intellectual Disabilities "For years, Robert Sternberg has produced renowned, groundbreaking work, and now some of it is captured in one volume:The Essential Sternberg...Established scholars and novices to the field will find this book a useful addition to their libraries."--Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts "[Sternberg] approaches the definition of intelligence from a very pragmatic perspective...Sternberg's focus on success in the real world is refreshing."--Teacher's College Record Any follower of Sternberg and theories of intelligence will need this collection on their bookshelf. Robert J. Sternberg has argued that the conventional idea of intelligence is, at best, incomplete. Therefore, he has redefined the core concept of intelligence: Sternberg's groundbreaking, triarchic theory proposes that intelligence is measured not just by factual knowledge or "book smarts," but also by the integration of creative ability, practical know-how, and analytic reasoning. As the former President of the American Psychological Association, current Dean of Tufts University, and one of the top 100 psychologists of the 20th century, according to the APA Monitor on Psychology, Sternberg is listed as one of ISI's most highly cited authors (top .5%) in psychology. Sternberg has authored over 1,000 journal articles, book chapters, and books. This comprehensive collection compiles the best of Sternberg-his most influential, career-defining articles culled from over 30 years of research. Serving as an introduction to and summary of his most critical contributions to the field, this book: Presents articles that track the development and progression of Sternberg's theory of successful intelligence Includes his most influential articles, such as "The nature of creativity" and "The Rainbow Project: Enhancing the SAT" Features articles on educational policy and how Sternberg's intelligence models can be used to improve student performance and supplement traditional exams Contains new articles on Sternberg's most recent theory, the Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, Synthesized (WICS) model

"I applaud the vision the authors had in synthesizing this information in a way that makes the reader more confident in their application of these theories and principles to their own classrooms. The authors have wonderfully succeeded in their attempt to integrate this material, in a manner quite different from other texts I've read or reviewed." Jim Persinger, "Emporia State University" "Any textbook that overemphasizes theory, neglects the real-world; any textbook that overemphasizes practice, neglects the underlying foundation of theory. This book strikes a careful balance between theory and practice by explicitly linking the two." Gregory Cutler, "Bay de Noc Community College" "By far, this is the best educational psychology text I have read because it integrates and applies major learning theories to many of the daily issues future teachers will face." Krista Robertson, "Rhode Island College" "I see this textbook as well written, informative, clearly and logically organized, and a very useful component for a course in Educational Psychology. I like it!" Raymond E. Webster, "East Carolina University" "The authors have done an excellent job in producing an easy-to-follow format and style." Paula Holmes Miller, "Crichton College" "The authors' writing style and presentation level are clear and easy to read, along with tables, figures, concept maps, and other visual aids." Yuliang Liu, Ph.D, "Southern Illinois University" "The text is well written and some very difficult topics such as Attribution Theory and Constructivism (to name just two) are easy to understand, when compared to similar books. I think this is some of the clearest writing I have read in a long time." Michael P. Verdi, "California State University San Bernadino" "I really enjoyed reading this text, and I found its comprehensive nature to be a strength." Linda W. Morse, "Mississippi State University" "The authors' writing style is clear, simple, and direct. It speaks directly to the reader . . . the examples are concrete and related to education."

In Wisdom, Intelligence, and Creativity Synthesized, Sternberg reviews and summarizes the best research available on human intelligence. He argues that any serious understanding of intelligence must go beyond the standard paper and pencil tests currently in use. In addition to analytical and quantitative abilities, a theory of intelligence must take account of peoples' creative abilities - their ability to go beyond given information and imagine new and exciting ways of reformulating old problems. It must also take into account peoples' ability to weigh options carefully and act prudently. Understanding one's own intellectual shortcomings, and learning how to overcome, is as important as developing one's strengths. Sternberg develops a vision of human intelligence that is far more nuanced and accurate than anything previously offered. Wisdom, Intelligence and Creativity Synthesized will be essential reading for psychologists, cognitive scientists, educators, and organizational researchers.

This new general elementary methods book offers a balanced presentation of skills, inquiry, and social approaches to teaching, structured around the concept of instructing for understanding. The authors stress that the truly effective teacher not only has knowledge of teaching strategies but also understands the importance of asking and answering such questions as: What learner characteristics affect the success of this strategy? What contextual factors will influence its outcome? What philosophical/ethical stance does it represent? This book includes coverage that reflects a “backward design” structure and consideration of student characteristics first; then, identification of complex tasks and assessment; and finally, daily instructional planning. It emphasizes authentic assessment and the importance of considering assessment when planning instruction. For professionals in the field of teaching grades K-12.

The Routledge International Companion to Gifted Education is a ground-breaking collection of fully-referenced chapters written by many of the most highly-respected authorities on the subject from around the world. These fifty contributors include distinguished scholars who have produced many of the most significant advances to the field over the past few decades, like Joseph Renzulli and Robert Sternberg, alongside authorities who ask questions about the very concepts and terminology embodied in the field – scholars such as Carol Dweck and Guy Claxton. This multi-faceted volume: highlights strategies to support giftedness in children, providing ideas that work and weeding out those that don’t; is written in jargon-free language in an easy-to use themed format; is the most authoritative collection of future-focused views, ideas and reflections, practices and evaluations yet produced; includes chapters dealing with the major controversies and concerns in the field today, from the problems of identification to changing understandings of giftedness and creativity. The international aspect of the Companion, and its juxtaposition of points of view – whereby chapters are deliberately positioned and accompanied by editorial commentary to highlight the contrasts with each other – ensures that different views are addressed, allowing the reader to absorb and reflect upon the many perspectives on each issue. The Companion is a guide to the new ideas and controversies that are informing gifted education discussion and policy-making around the world. It is a first class resource to students and researchers alike.
