Product Description

Review

"Chicago Tribune", Editor's Choice
"The idea of multiple intelligences is so much a part of our cultural conversation that it is hard to believe that these ideas are fairly new and that this book was published just two decades ago. This anniversary edition feels fresh and as urgent as it did in its original form." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought this book as part of a course reading list, but unlike most books on the list, I ended up reading it cover to cover.

Gardner puts some really interesting points forward about what it means to really understand something, and how our education system is not geered towards achieving this, instead being focused on getting kids to jump through hoops. Although it sounds like common sense, Gardner really takes this point a lot further than I can articulate in this review, and says a whole lot more too. Overall, this is far more than the general PGCE / M.Ed reading list title which is only good for a few quotes, its actually a book worth reading for anyone involved in education.

Given the opportunity, I would strap Michael Gove to the ground and force him to listen to listen to a few passages from this book (alongside, perhaps, a few choice passages of my own 'personal wisdom').

This is important reading for all teachers and administrators. Gardner provides powerful insights into why schools aren't producing students with the skills to solve problems in real-life settings. His ideas help us examine how schools today could effectively teach for understanding.
