Riassunto: Every day teachers are faced with a sea of expectant faces each with a different way of seeing and learning. How can we motivate and empower every one of these young people to reach their highest potential?

Some of our greatest thinkers make illustrative appearances inside, including Einstein, Aristotle, Earhart and Caldecott, demonstrating and reinforcing the value of diversity in the highest standards of thought and action. Presenting a variety of paths to success allows students to take responsibility for their choices, and yields a love of learning that will stay with them for life. The authors practical insights into psychological type and distinct learning styles are accompanied by a comprehensive library of reproducible handouts, exercises, and support materials on the included Resource CD-ROM.
