Abstract:

Challenges educators to design programs that boldly embrace the Common Core State Standards by imaginatively drawing from the genius of great men and women, such as Leonardo da Vinci. A central figure in the High Renaissance, Leonardo made extraordinary contributions as a painter, architect, sculptor, scientist, engineer, and futurist. This book demonstrates that schools can cultivate genius such as Leonardo's, while ensuring that all students realize the core skills crucial to citizens. Relevant to public and independent educators who are creating schools-within-schools and charter schools, renewing schools, or rethinking their own classrooms, this book serves as a model of biographical curricula that embraces the standards that Americans share as citizens in a democracy.
