The Intelligence-Friendly Classroom:

What it Looks Like & Sounds Like


The Intelligence-Friendly Classroom honors the theoretical underpinnings of the constructivist concept of the active, engaged learner in today's classroom...

The theories of intelligence of Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, Feuerstein, Perkins, Gardner, Costa, Sternberg, Coles and Goleman are used to illustrate how the legacies of these thinkers translate into the "best practices" of the mindful classroom.

By highlighting this expansive view of intelligence, we celebrate the spectrum of human potential for all as life-long learners with diverse and valued gifts.
