How to Unlock the Gifts in Every Child.
"Gifted", "creative thinking" and "individual ability" are the new buzz words in schools everywhere. This book shows parents how they can help bring out the best in their child in this new educational environment, developing creativity, thinking skills and problem solving by using the mental skills that the most gifted people have.
Bring out the best in your children, with Bernadette Tynan's overview of the skills of gifted children and how any child can be taught to employ them. This book advocates an end to traditional rote or passive learning, offering a range of strategies designed to engage a child's emotions, using multi-sensory stimulation and prompting their natural curiosity.
These strategies tie in with new education initiatives, such as the introduction of schools specialising in different subjects to concentrate on pupils' gifts rather than their problems. This book acts as a guide to this new direction in education, introducing the idea of 'different kinds of clever' and an emphasis on creative thinking.
