In Wisdom, Intelligence, and Creativity Synthesized, Sternberg reviews and summarizes the best research available on human intelligence. He argues that any serious understanding of intelligence must go beyond the standard paper and pencil tests currently in use. In addition to analytical and quantitative abilities, a theory of intelligence must take account of peoples' creative abilities - their ability to go beyond given information and imagine new and exciting ways of reformulating old problems. It must also take into account peoples' ability to weigh options carefully and act prudently. Understanding one's own intellectual shortcomings, and learning how to overcome, is as important as developing one's strengths. Sternberg develops a vision of human intelligence that is far more nuanced and accurate than anything previously offered. Wisdom, Intelligence and Creativity Synthesized will be essential reading for psychologists, cognitive scientists, educators, and organizational researchers.

Teaching and Measuring Cognitive Readiness presents theoretical and empirical findings regarding cognitive readiness and assessments of their impact on adult learning. The term readiness is used in assessing student preparation for K-12 schools, while in the military and in industry, "readiness" denotes preparation to be effective in performing a mission or a job. Cognitive Readiness is viewed through a Knowledge, Skills, and Attributes (KSA) lens. Teaching and Measuring Cognitive Readiness deals with (a) the primacy of cognitive readiness as attributes or individual difference variables; (b) the need for cognitive readiness instructional and assessment strategies; (c) the need to integrate assessment into cognitive readiness training; (d) the need for theory-driven evaluation studies to increase knowledge and efficacy in teaching cognitive readiness; and (e) the need for a solid psychometric approach to the use of cognitive readiness assessments.

As the 21st century ushers in the era of Common Core State Standards, the goal of teaching expands from a basic transmission of facts to the development of cognitive skills that equip students to achieve more of their unique potential. This seminal book focuses on five essential concepts from neuroeducation that should underlie all teaching decisions: (1) neuroplasticity, findings that the structure and function of the brain change in response to learning; (2) potential, the capacity for all students to make learning gains; (3) malleable intelligence, which stands in opposition to traditional views of fixed intellect; (4) the Body-Brain System, the role of physical fitness, healthy nutrition, and positive emotions in facilitating learning; and (5) metacognition, teaching students to think about their thinking. To support classroom implementation, these discussions include vignettes, examples, teaching strategies, reflective questions, and connections between brain-based learning principles and the Common Core. The text concludes by unmasking myths and misconceptions that may obscure these core concepts.

Now updated with new research—the book that has changed millions of lives After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own. Praise for Mindset “A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success “An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Everyone should read this book.”—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick “One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock “If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.”—Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start 2.0

"I strongly recommend this book to people working in the area of intellectual disabilities...It may open new vistas that are not always available in the traditional disability literature. It will especially challenge psychologists working in this field."--Journal of Policy and Practice in Intellectual Disabilities "For years, Robert Sternberg has produced renowned, groundbreaking work, and now some of it is captured in one volume:The Essential Sternberg...Established scholars and novices to the field will find this book a useful addition to their libraries."--Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts "[Sternberg] approaches the definition of intelligence from a very pragmatic perspective...Sternberg's focus on success in the real world is refreshing."--Teacher's College Record Any follower of Sternberg and theories of intelligence will need this collection on their bookshelf. Robert J. Sternberg has argued that the conventional idea of intelligence is, at best, incomplete. Therefore, he has redefined the core concept of intelligence: Sternberg's groundbreaking, triarchic theory proposes that intelligence is measured not just by factual knowledge or "book smarts," but also by the integration of creative ability, practical know-how, and analytic reasoning. As the former President of the American Psychological Association, current Dean of Tufts University, and one of the top 100 psychologists of the 20th century, according to the APA Monitor on Psychology, Sternberg is listed as one of ISI's most highly cited authors (top .5%) in psychology. Sternberg has authored over 1,000 journal articles, book chapters, and books. This comprehensive collection compiles the best of Sternberg-his most influential, career-defining articles culled from over 30 years of research. Serving as an introduction to and summary of his most critical contributions to the field, this book: Presents articles that track the development and progression of Sternberg's theory of successful intelligence Includes his most influential articles, such as "The nature of creativity" and "The Rainbow Project: Enhancing the SAT" Features articles on educational policy and how Sternberg's intelligence models can be used to improve student performance and supplement traditional exams Contains new articles on Sternberg's most recent theory, the Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, Synthesized (WICS) model

Το “Σύστημα του Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού” (Master Key System) του Charles Francis Haanel, δημοσιευμένο το 1916, είναι μια διδασκαλία στην αυτογνωσία και την αυτοενδυνάμωση. Πρωτοεμφανίστηκε το 1912 μέσα στα μασονικά καταλύματα, αρχικά στη μορφή των μαθημάτων των 24 εβδομάδων και μετά το 1916 συστήθηκε στο κοινό για πρώτη φορά με μορφή βιβλίου. Τα 24 κεφάλαια περιλαμβάνουν ενδιαφέροντα γεγονότα, όχι μόνο κεφάλαια με ασκήσεις αλλά και κεφάλαια με ερωτήσεις και απαντήσεις- δείτε επίσης απόσπασμα του βιβλίου στο www.master-key-system.org Αυτό (το πολύτιμο) που το θεμελιώδες κλειδί κάνει, είναι η συστηματική δομή της επίκτητης γνώσης, καθώς και οι ασκήσεις. Σταδιακά οδηγεί τους μαθητές του Charles Haanel στη μεγέθυνση του θέματος, δίνοντας χρόνο να κατοπτρίσει και να επανεξετάσει όσα έχουν μάθει. Εξηγεί τις σχέσεις ανάμεσα στα αυτά που αποκαλούμε “Θεό” ή “Παγκόσμια Συνείδηση” και εμάς, το άτομο. Το δεύτερο είναι ένα κανάλι μέσω του οποίου η παγκόσμια έκφραση δίνει και το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού μας λέει ακριβώς πώς αυτό εκφράζεται. Το Σύστημα του Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού περιστρέφεται γύρω από την αλήθεια. Μαθαίνεις τι είναι η αλήθεια και τι σημαίνει να την εκφράζεις. Θα μάθεις την τέχνη του να γίνεσαι ένα με το αντικείμενο των σκέψεών σου. Μαθαίνεις μία επιθυμία σαν ένα ήδη υπάρχον γεγονός για να δεις και να νοιώσεις πραγματικά. Αρκετά βιβλία και διδασκαλίες σε αριθμό έχουν αντιμετωπίσει αυτό το θέμα. Παρόλα αυτά, κατά τη γνώμη μου, το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού είναι ο πιο χρήσιμος οδηγός σε έναν νέο εαυτό και κατά συνέπεια σε μία νέα ζωή. Κανένας στο παρελθόν δεν έχει τόσο συστηματικά χτίσει και πάνω από όλα θετικά και απλά εξηγήσει πώς λειτουργεί η δημιουργία και πώς εμείς, σαν άτομα, μπορούμε να το εκμεταλλευτούμε, χωρίς όμως να εκμεταλλευόμαστε άλλους ανθρώπους. Το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού μελετώντας το και εντάσσοντάς το στη ζωή, οδηγεί στη δημιουργία μίας ξεχωριστής προσωπικότητας η οποία είναι γεμάτη αυτοπεποίθηση, κουράγιο και κίνητρο. Εφαρμόζοντας τις αρχές και τους νόμους που μαθαίνονται στο Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού, ο άνθρωπος είναι τόσο γεμάτος ενέργεια που μετατρέπεται σε μαγνήτη για όλα τα όμορφα και καλοπροαίρετα πράγματα. Ταυτόχρονα είναι στις υπηρεσίες της ανθρωπότητας, δείχνοντας την ταπεινότητά του πριν τη δημιουργία και συνεχίζοντας με υπευθυνότητα στη ζωή. Η μελέτη χρειάζεται πειθαρχία και συγκέντρωση. Οι ασκήσεις αποτελούν αναπόσπαστο μέρος και είναι μείζονος σημασίας, καθώς μέσω αυτών πραγματοποιείται η επέκταση της συνείδησης και ο επαναπρογραμματισμός του υποσυνείδητου μυαλού. Με την απλή και μόνο ανάγνωση του βιβλίου, θα υπάρξει μία μικρή πνευματική ικανοποίηση. Αν και τα τελευταία χρόνια η γνώση έχει προχωρήσει πολύ, το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού εξακολουθεί να σχετίζεται με το σήμερα όπως σχετιζόταν πάντα. Αυτό που έγραψε τότε ο Charles Haanel, σήμερα είναι ακόμα πιο σημαντικό. Τα παλιά συστήματα και οι δομές που δε δημιουργούνταν για το καλό όλων εμπίπτουν σε αυτό- κάτι το οποίο είναι παντού εμφανές. Ταυτόχρονα, επιταχύνοντας της ανάπτυξη της συνείδησης, πολλοί άνθρωποι “αναγκάζονται¨ να αναπροσανατολιστούν δηλαδή να ξανασκεφτούν και να επαναδιαπραγματευτούν γιατί συνειδητοποιούν πως δεν μπορούν και δε θα συνεχίσουν να ζουν με τον τρόπο που ζούσαν μέχρι τώρα. Πολλά μπορούν να αποδοθούν στο Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού, αλλά το πραγματικό όφελος προκύπτει από τη μελέτη την ίδια. Επομένως, χρησιμοποίησε τη δύναμή σου και ζήσε μία ζωή που δεν είχες ούτε ονειρευτεί στο παρελθόν. Εξαρτάται από εσένα. Η κληρονομιά περιμένει να τη διεκδικήσεις. Το βήμα αυτό που πρέπει να κάνεις για τον εαυτό σου, μπορεί και θα μετακινήσει οποιονδήποτε. Σου εγγυώμαι, πως δε θα μετανιώσεις ποτέ αυτό το βήμα στην καινούργια ζωή. Ακριβώς το αντίθετο. Όταν δεις αυτό που συμβαίνει, αυτό που έχει συμβεί στη ζωή μου και συνεχίζει να συμβαίνει, τότε θα είσαι ευγνώμων που ακολούθησες το Σύστημα Θεμελιώδους Κλειδιού.

Sternberg's book convincingly indicts the SAT and ACT exams. A single test lasting a few hours, he writes, "ends up having a weight equal" to the product of "years of effort and dedication" in high school.
