Most Helpful Customer Reviews

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Michael T. Gagnon on June 12, 2008
Teaching, in many ways, has become a tightrope walk between creativity and standards. Do we teach students to memorize and study for tests or do we teach them to think? The essays presented in this book should be an essential part of any teacher education program, not to mention on any department bookshelf. What will serve students better - the ability to pass a test or the ability to think themselves through a given situation? In the era of testing, isn't it time to re-consider what we are doing to the next generation of students? Costa gathers insightful essays by various experts in a way that invites discussion and investigation. The book should not be read all at once, but taken piece by piece and used to enhance classroom inquiry for new and old teachers alike.

The theme of "Developing Minds" is how
to make America smart through the
development of realistic expectations,
honoring accomplishments, meaningful
evaluations, academic rigor, critical
thinking and apprenticeship.

Costa provides a series of small articles
which develop the major themes in the book.
For example, thinking is defined in the
context of identifying, classifying,
establishing relationships, making analogies
and drawing conclusions.

There are a number of very important habits
common to great minds. Examples are persistence,
empathy, flexibility, meta cognition, precision,
questioning, application of past knowledge,
imagination and thinking independently.

Intelligence is defined in a number of classic
contexts. Examples are mathematics, verbal skills,
interpersonal skills, articulation of nature,
musical composition, spatial prowess and mastering
bodily functions.

Costa develops a profile of great teachers. The
profile includes the acceptance of student autonomy,
allowing dialogue, collaborating, coaching and
peer interaction.

Developing Minds is an important teaching tool for
teachers, parents, administrators and students. The
examples are topical and the systems approach is employed
throughout.
