I am going through this book called The Element, by Ken Robinson. I'm actually listening to it in my car on cd! I find that listening to books on cd is a good way to pass the time in the car. I've only listened to about a half an hour, but I already recommend it. It is all about creativity, nurturing different types of intelligences, finding and developing talent and pursuing a career that utilizes all of your creative talent. So far it is fascinating. I heard of this book from Jessica Balsey's website, the Art of Education. I would love to take one of her classes and I will probably do so someday. However this year I already have all of my professional development workshops and conventions lined up, but maybe next summer. Have you read anything good lately?
