Overview


We live in a time of relentless change. The only thing that?s certain is that new challenges and opportunities will emerge that are virtually unimaginable today. How can we know which skills will be required to succeed?

In Five Minds for the Future, bestselling author Howard Gardner shows how we will each need to master "five minds" that the fast-paced future will demand:

· The disciplined mind, to learn at least one profession, as well as the major thinking (science, math, history, etc.) behind it

· The synthesizing mind, to organize the massive amounts of information and communicate effectively to others

· The creating mind, to revel in unasked questions - and uncover new phenomena and insightful apt answers

· The respectful mind, to appreciate the differences between human beings - and understand and work with all persons

· The ethical mind, to fulfill one's responsibilities as both a worker and a citizen

Without these "minds," we risk being overwhelmed by information, unable to succeed in the workplace, and incapable of the judgment needed to thrive both personally and professionally.

Complete with a substantial new introduction, Five Minds for the Future provides valuable tools for those looking ahead to the next generation of leaders - and for all of us striving to excel in a complex world.

Howard Gardner—cited by Foreign Policy magazine as one of the one hundred most influential public intellectuals in the world, and a MacArthur Fellowship recipient—is the Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

The magnitude of the education crisis in America is beyond belief. When will educators confront the real issues, namely The "15 Stumbling of Academic Failure" that cheat most students of an education. You will find a more in-depth analysis of the core issues underlying the malfunctioning American education system in Sugar's "The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds." The book is saving lives, one child at a time. She rescued my kids from the brink with the ACANDY Processing Tools, the new learning technology, that empowers all students for academic success (smartgrades.com). We are all tired of crappy educational theories that don't add up to much and as a result, don't deliver results.
