From the Publisher"Ron Ritchhart will engage and regale you with a very different way of looking at good thinking and flexible intelligence, what they are, where they come from, and how perhaps learning and education could help people to get more of them."
--from the Foreword by David Perkins, professor of education, Harvard Graduate School of Education
"Intellectual Character is that rare book that successfully translates deep, complex ideas into accessible prose and illuminates key concepts with compelling examples from real classrooms. It breaks new ground by demonstrating that when skillfully guided by teachers who themselves act intelligently, students are eager to engage in meaningful, rigorous learning."
--Tony Jackson, author, Turningpoints 2000: Educating Adolescents for the 21st Century
"An invaluable guide for fostering thoughtful students and thoughtful classrooms."
--Howard Gardner, John H. and Elisabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education
