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.

"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

Applying the Science of Learning to University Teaching and Beyond

It is sadly true that most of the way we teach and learn is uninformed by laboratory findings in human cognition. Although researchers have made considerable progress in understanding the cognitive and social variables that mediate in the learning process, very little of this basic knowledge has been translated into practice, many research questions that are critically important for directing educational reform remain unanswered, and few in the scientific community have been actively involved in the efforts to reform higher education. This edited volume is among many recent attempts to build on empirically-validated learning activities to enhance what and how much is learned and how well and how long it is remembered. Thus, the movement for a real "Science of Learning" has taken hold-the application of scientific principles to the study of learning-both under the controlled conditions of the laboratory and in the messy real-world settings where most of us go about the business of learning. This is the 89th issue of the quarterly Jossey-Bass publication New Directions for Teaching and Learning.

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.

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.
