Gender differences in mathematics : an integrative psychological approach( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Females consistently score lower than males on standardized tests of mathematics, yet no such differences exist in the classroom. These differences are not trivial, nor are they insignificant. Test scores help determine entrance to college and graduate school and, therefore, by extension, a person's job and future success. If females receive lower test scores, then they also receive fewer opportunities." "Why does this discrepancy exist? This book presents a series of chapters that address these issues by integrating the latest research findings and theories."--BOOK JACKET
The international handbook of creativity( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What constitutes a creative person? Is it someone who can perform many tasks innovatively? Is it someone who exhibits creative genius in one area? Is it someone who utilizes her creativity for good and moral causes? Is it someone who uses his creativity to help his company or country succeed? Different cultures have different perspectives on what it means to be creative, yet it is nearly always the American or Western perspective that is represented in the psychological literature. The goal of The International Handbook of Creativity is to present a truly international and diverse set of perspectives on the psychology of human creativity. Distinguished scholars from around the world have written chapters for this book about the history and current state of creativity research and theory in their respective parts of the world. The book presents a wide array of international perspectives and research, with much of the work discussed never before available in English
The Cambridge Handbook of Creativity by James C Kaufman( Book )

19 editions published in 2010 in English and French and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cambridge Handbook of Creativity is a comprehensive scholarly handbook on creativity from the most respected psychologists, researchers, and educators. This handbook serves both as a thorough introduction to the field of creativity and as an invaluable reference and current source of important information. It covers such diverse topics as the brain, education, business, and world cultures. The first section, "Basic Concepts," is designed to introduce readers to both the history of and key concepts in the field of creativity. The next section, "Diverse Perspectives of Creativity," contains chapters on the many ways of approaching creativity. Several of these approaches, such as the functional, evolutionary, and neuroscientific approaches, have been invented or greatly reconceptualized in the last decade. The third section, "Contemporary Debates," highlights ongoing topics that still inspire discussion. Finally, the editors summarize and discuss important concepts from the book and look to what lies ahead"--Provided by publisher
Nurturing creativity in the classroom by Ronald A., Ed Beghetto( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nurturing Creativity in the Classroom is a groundbreaking collection of essays by leading scholars, who examine and respond to the tension that many educators face in valuing student creativity but believing that they cannot support it given the curricular constraints of the classroom. Is it possible for teachers to nurture creative development and expression without drifting into curricular chaos? Do curricular constraints necessarily lead to choosing conformity over creativity? This book combines the perspectives of top educators and psychologists to generate practical advice for considering and addressing the challenges of supporting creativity within the classroom. It is unique in its balance of practical recommendations for nurturing creativity and thoughtful appreciation of curricular constraints. This approach helps ensure that the insights and advice found in this collection will take root in educators' practice, rather than being construed as yet another demand placed on their overflowing plate of responsibilities"--Provided by publisher

The evolution of intelligence by Robert J Sternberg( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How is one to understand the nature of intelligence? One approach is through psychometric testing, but such an approach often puts the ""cart before the horse""--The test before the theory. Another approach is to use evolutionary theory. This criterion has been suggested by a number of individuals in the past, from Charles Darwin in the more distant past to Howard Gardner, Stephen Gould, Steven Pinker, Carl Sagan, David Stenhouse, and many others. The chapters in this book address three major questions: 1. Does evolutionary theory help us understand the nature of human intelligence? 2

The creativity conundrum : a propulsion model of kinds of creative contributions by Robert J Sternberg( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People tend to think of creativity as a trait-a single attribute with which we are born that is relatively fixed in quantity. Many people also think of creativity as something that only very gifted people possess. This book challenges all of these notions. The basic idea is that there are multiple kinds of creativity, and that everyone can develop at least some of these kinds of creativity. The book considers the various kinds of creativity as they apply in domains such as science, literature, the arts, government, business, and sports. The most common kind of creativity may be conceptual replication, whereby someone produces a minor variant of work that has been produced before. This kind of creativity represents a "limiting case" of creative thought. Most successful inventions and scientific discoveries represent "forward incrementations," which basically take existing ideas and move them to the next step in the direction the field is already going. Often more radical are redirections, which take a field in a new direction, and reinitiations, which represent essentially a "starting over" of how people think about a given problem. The book discusses 8 kinds of creativity, and how they are similar to and different from each other. It is illustrated with many examples, and describes why it is necessary to distinguish among the kinds of creativity. --From publisher's description
Creativity across domains : faces of the muse( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Creativity Across Domains: Faces of the Muse sorts through the theoretical diversity that domain specificity has spawned. It also brings together various researchers who have studied creative thinkers in different areas, such as the arts, sciences, and communications. This volume explains what is known about the cognitive processes, ways of conceptualizing and solving problems, personality and motivational attributes, guiding metaphors, and work habits or styles that best characterize creative people within the several domains that are covered." "Creativity Across Domains will appeal to creativity researchers and students; cognitive, educational, social, and developmental psychologists; and educated laypeople interested in exploring their own creativity."--Jacket

Applied intelligence by Robert J Sternberg( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Typical texts develop students' knowledge while only minimally developing the general skills they will need for success in school and in life. The goal of our text is to assist students in acquiring the most important skills for facing the diverse challenges life presents. The book contains an overview of theories of intelligence, but itself is based in large part on a theory according to which individuals need creative skills to generate new ideas and a vision for the future, analytical skills to make sure that the vision is a good one, and practical skills to execute the ideas and to persuade other people of their value. The book considers key skills in problem solving, logical reasoning, analysis of arguments, knowledge acquisition, creative and practical thinking, automatizing information processing, and avoiding life traps that derail even the most intelligent among us."--BOOK JACKET
