"The authors are sensitive to the constraints that operate on teachers even as they are open to ways in which teachers can refashion their classes and curricula to reach more children in more effective ways. This book will help teachers to enliven and enrich their classrooms and to forge new connections across concepts and curricula." -- From the Foreword by Howard Gardner "Clear, concise, and with outstanding illustrative material. The book adds to the discussion on integrating curriculum with multiple intelligences." -- Linda Eisinger, Third-Grade Teacher "Well written, user-friendly, and has great examples that educators will relate to." -- Brigitte Tennis, Headmistress and Seventh-Grade Teacher "In this concrete book with a multitude of examples, the authors offer specific suggestions for merging curriculum with recent multiple intelligences experience and research. The tone is upbeat and the style is practical and well organized, making it appealing to teachers." -- Renee Peoples, Teacher "Has great merit in providing connections and a strong learning environment for students. The authors provide excellent charts, templates, graphic organizers, and resources for educators to use and examine." -- Rosemarie Young, Principal "Teachers are held accountable for designing instruction and assessing standards-based outcomes. They are also asked to teach for retention, cooperative learning, and individual differences. This book provides a wealth of delightful, creative, and compelling strategies and lessons, with techniques for integrating these diverse objectives." -- Arthur L. Costa, Professor Emeritus
