As a teacher in an affluent school that demands competent and creative teachers, I am always looking for new ways to engage my students and help them to develop critical thinking skills and a love for education. Having read the four book series and having instituted the ideas into practice, I can say it has made me a better teacher and has enlivened my classroom. Although it is true that the book lacks any scientific data to back its assertions, so it is with most books on education. Education is a difficult concept to scientifically quantify, and first one would have to answer the question...What is education? That notwithstanding, this book helps in all areas of teaching from the teaching of intelligent, curious students to less inspired and motivated student to those who have been mainstreamed into the classroom. It helps develop a "whole" classroom that benefits each and every child.

The series of books are interesting reading. Many good ideas, but tough to implement as an individual. These would be good books to use for a Professional Learning Circle or professional development.

Format: Paperback
It is evident that Mr. Costa has read the many books out there that tell you that you can become a recognized "authority" in your field by inventing a new jargon and writing a book. Because that is just what Mr. Costa does! There is no scientific or physiological data, no scientifically based reasearch studies. In this age of brain research, there is no excuse for a book that advocates improving children's attention span by having them make posters! This book is a total waste of time and money!!!!
