Rethinking Intelligence: Confronting Psychological Assumptions about Teaching and Learning

Synopsis

Arguing that a comprehensive theoretical overhaul of mainstream educational psychology is long overdue, Rethinking Intelligence suggests criteria upon which new models can be developed. The contributors reconceptualize educational psychology through a democratic vision of inclusivity that takes into account the culturally inscribed nature of research. They offer a theoretical and historical critique of how intelligence is measured in ways that exclude or ignore other criteria. By doing so, they hope to encourage educators and researchers to imagine new forms of intelligence, education, and life.
