Creating Capable Kids: Twelve Skills That Will Help Kids Succeed in School and Life by Bruce Howlett and Caitlin Howlett

English | 2015 | ISBN: 088282497X | 240 pages | PDF | 2,4 MB

Here is a compelling, thought provoking and practical guide to parenting and educating today`s children. It is derived from Amartya Sen`s Nobel Prize-winning approach to human development which has proven highly effective at freeing people from the chains of poverty. Educators Bruce and Caitlin Howlett apply Sen`s approach to child development at home and in school and offering fresh, effective ways to rescue parenting and revive education, while providing parents, teachers and caregivers with a proven foundation for creating rewarding childhoods, academic success and fulfilling lives.

By incorporating the twelve key capabilities, such as sensory awareness, creative imagination, emotional and self-awareness, parents and educators can promote the three most critical tools for children`s survival and success: continuous learning, problem solving, and increased knowledge and meaning. Using stories of three different types of children – Zoe, Mia and Daniel – the authors demonstrate the value of life and of the "Capabilities Approach" theory on how to cultivate inquisitive, actively engaged, motivated, perceptive and resilient children.
