Books I’m Reading


by Tony Wagnerby Howard Gardner

I recently purchased Global Achievement Gap by Tony Wagner at the Coop. Tony, co-director of the Change Leadership Group at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, gave a talk at the Coop and signed my book.

Five Minds for the Future, by Howard Gardner, is one of my favorite books.  I had bought and read the book in 2006 and am now rereading it for a class – Inquiry: Educating for the Unknown, taught by David Perkins. Howard Gardner and David Perkins have worked together for more than three decades and were co-directors of Project Zero for most of that period. They are my heroes in education.
