Kids for Coltrane

Archive for April 2009

Fantastic…my favorite magazine has focused on Multiple Intelligence theory this month! There is an insightful new interview with one of my heroes Dr. Howard Gardner.
Check out their site I strongly recommend that you sign up for Edutopia. The benefits are great, including illuminating webinars. This month, I viewed a webinar which featured Dr. Judy Willis. Dr. Willis is a middle school teacher and neurologist and authority on learning-centered brain research and classroom strategies derived from this research.
Kindly read my advice published on their Sage Advice page. Just click and scroll down.

What’s your resolution for the new school year?
