Teaching Genius: Redefining Education with Lessons from Science and Philosophy

The history and philosophy of science provide a deep well of lessons and analogies for educators. Historically, geniuses are produced by certain recurring historical patterns which, once understood, can be synthesized into practical curricular and professional development guides for teachers and administrators. Drawing on history, philosophy, theoretical physics, neuroscience, and the best scholarship on teacher practice, Teaching Genius: Redefining Education with Lessons from Science and Philosophy presents a new vision for educational reform, one which is shaped by teachers and framed by history. Written by a classroom teacher, Teaching Genius is philosophical and practical, deeply rooted, and immediately applicable. Teachers and administrators looking to invigorate their classroom practices or their staffs will find this book to be indispensable.
