Based on the renowned "Renzulli Method," which has been adopted in schools all over the country, LIGHT UP YOUR CHILD'S MIND presents a practical program to help children fire up a love of learning to last a lifetime. World-renowned experts Drs. Renzulli and Reis illustrate the crucial role parents can play in their children's development and address how they can work with teachers to enhance their children's education. They uncover the hidden potential of daydreamers, rebels, and one-track minds, arguing that gifted behavior--basic smarts, high levels of task commitment, and creativity--can be fostered in bright children, even unmotivated ones. Step by step, LIGHT UP YOUR CHILD'S MIND will show parents how to set their kids on the path to a rewarding future.

Drawing on 30 years of research, Renzulli, director of The National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented, and Reis (Educational Psychology Department, the University of Connecticut) offers parents a program of inquiry-oriented activities to provide children with early experiences in creative thinking and productivity. They contend that gifted behavior, such as high levels of task commitment and creativity, can be fostered in all children, even unmotivated ones, and show how to uncover the hidden potential of daydreamers, rebels, and one-track minds. They also discuss special considerations for gifted and talented students, those with learning disabilities, and underachievers. The book includes questionnaires to identify kids' interests and learning styles, project ideas, and a resource section listing books, web sites, and competitions for children.
