Are you cultivating the real-world creative problem-solving skills today’s diverse learners need for future success? Or have we leaned so far into test preparation that we’ve left no room for developing our students’ unique talents, leaving them disengaged and unmotivated?
With the new brain-based Talent-Targeted Teaching and Learning model described in this book, you can focus instead on developing all students’ metacognitive, creative problem-solving, and leadership skills alongside the required content standards. Teach to Develop Talent applies the psychology of motivation, engagement, and achievement to practical, culturally responsive strategies educators can use to equitably identify and develop students’ cognitive and social-emotional skills, including curiosity, creativity, perseverance, reasoning, persistence, empathy, and more.
With this book, you can:
- Identify and develop all learners’ aptitudes for innovation in STEM and humanities
- Transform any curriculum or standards into long-term aims for talent development
- Support and assess student progress with dozens of customizable checklists, templates, rubrics, and surveys
- Challenge and engage all learners, especially diverse gifted students
Ideal for implementation in virtual or traditional learning environments, you will ensure your students’ long-range and multi-faceted success with this hands-on guide.
Use the “What Is Talent?” quiz as professional learning for faculty and parent/community groups with the same goal of establishing the beliefs and assumptions foundational to a talent development mindset.
