9780316003988: Light Up Your Child's Mind: Finding a Unique Pathway to Happiness and Success

Based on the renowned "Renzulli Method," which has been adopted in schools all over the country, LIGHT UP YOUR CHILD'S MIND presents a practical program to help children fire up a love of learning to last a lifetime. World-renowned experts Drs. Renzulli and Reis illustrate the crucial role parents can play in their children's development and address how they can work with teachers to enhance their children's education. They uncover the hidden potential of daydreamers, rebels, and one-track minds, arguing that gifted behavior--basic smarts, high levels of task commitment, and creativity--can be fostered in bright children, even unmotivated ones. Step by step, LIGHT UP YOUR CHILD'S MIND will show parents how to set their kids on the path to a rewarding future.

About the Author:

Joseph S. Renzulli, Ph.D., is the Neag Professor of Gifted Education and Talent Development at the University of Connecticut and the Director of The National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented. He has received numerous distinguished research awards and been named, by the American Psychological Association's Monitor on Psychology, among the world's 25 most influential psychologists.

Sally M. Reis, Ph.D., is a professor and the Department Head of the Educational Psychology Department in the University of Connecticut Neag School of Education. She was awarded the Distinguished Service Award and named a Distinguished Scholar by the National Association for Gifted Children.

From Publishers Weekly:

Renzulli, whose model for the education of gifted children has been widely adopted, presents a program for parents to identify and foster their school-aged children's interests and abilities. Inspired in no small part by education pioneers John Dewey and Jean Piaget, he tells parents how to help their children acquire new skills and interests and fully utilize the ones they have. Every child, gifted or not, has unique talents and strengths, not always apparent in the classroom, that can be cultivated through a variety of parent-directed exercises in creative thinking and productivity. Part I of this volume investigates academic giftedness vs. out-of-the-box gifts, and looks at kids whose learning styles and intellectual curiosity go against the current definition. Part II, the bulk of the book, offers practical paths to recognizing and developing those gifts and talents, and includes bulleted lists, dialogues, checklists and evaluations, chapters full of concrete advice, dozens of ideas and activities, plus case studies of individual kids' creative-productive projects. Part III covers special considerations: the twice exceptional, i.e., kids with gifts coupled with learning disabilities, ways to reclaim the underachiever and how to partner with teachers and schools. While Renzulli's discussion of giftedness is nothing new, the authors offer excellent step-by-step advice for parents of all children. (Aug.)
