Our December guest speaker, Rick Ackerly, has graciously donated his newest book for one lucky person.

Book Description (Amazon.com) Every parent wants the best for their child and it can be difficult for parents to watch from the sidelines when their child goes off to school. But Rick Ackerly helps parents through this transition with a reassuring book that shows them that while they will always be their child’s first teacher and can continue to see themselves as educators, it is critical that “parents” and “teachers” play their respective positions. Ultimately, education is about so much more than learning how to read or solve a math problem; it’s also about building character and integrity, learning to handle setbacks and accept responsibility, and developing imagination and initiative.

Enter below for a chance to win Rick Ackerly’s book The Genius in Every Child: Encouraging Character, Curiosity, and Creativity in Children.

Each task you do is another entry for yourself in the drawing! Tweeting on Twitter and sharing on Facebook can be done DAILY. Other entries are once per giveaway. *NOTE* This giveaway runs from 12/5/12 until 12/11/12 (Ending @ 12:00am EST).

    All too often, students are expected to copy or reproduce teacher examples in all aspects of edcuation from math problems to art work. There is just not enough encouragement by educators to let students have the time and opportunity to use their imaginations to solve problems and create solutions. I really liked how Ackerly said (about the Scream project), ok create something NEW! I look forward to reading more.

    I read creativity in children: Parodies of the screm. This is a very good article and teaches you a lot. It was talking about how a teacher gave the fourth graders an assignment and what they had to do and paint. I learned that just giving children an assignment can show that kids can be creative even when working with things they may not know a lot about. I really like how this teacher was teaching the chilren and how there paintings and points of view came out. I really think you all should go read this article as well.
