  8. 8. •  When 11-year-old Aubyn Burnside heard about how many children in foster care programs are forced to carry their belongings in garbage bags because they cannot afford suitcases, she was shocked and saddened. "I thought they must feel like garbage themselves," she said. So, Aubyn founded Suitcases for Kids, dedicating herself to ensuring that every child in foster care would have a bag of his or her own.

  11. 11. Underlying  Assump:ons  For  Studying  Intelligences   Outside  The  Normal  Curve   1.    Persons  with  high  poten:al  will  emerge  as  leaders,  policy  makers,  and   persons  of  influence  in  all  walks  of  life  including  religion,  poli:cs,  business,   government,  science,  the  arts  and  humani:es,  and  other  domains  that  define  a   society  and  a  culture.       2.  Educa:onal  ins:tu:ons  and  programs  that  serve  high  poten:al  youth  have  a     responsibility  to  provide  opportuni:es,  resources,  and  experiences  that  contribute     to  the  ethical,  moral,  social,  and  emo:onal  development  of  young  people     as  well  as  their  cogni/ve  development.               “I  have  found  that  the  higher  the  IQ,  the   earlier  moral  concerns  develop  and  the  more   profound  effect  they  have  on  the  child.            R.  A.  Silverman                Journal  of  Personality,  1994     Research  shows  that  when  children  are   young  they  develop  what  you  call  intui:ve   theories.    It’s  like  powerful  engravings  on   your  brain.    Teachers  don’t  realize  how   powerful  they  are,  but  early  theories  don’t   disappear,  they  stay  on  the  ground.                                                      Howard  Gardner                                      Quoted  in  Kogan,  2000,  p.  66

  13. 13. We  are  not  engaged  in  producing  just  good   performers  in  the  market  place  or  able   technocrats.  Our  task  is  the  educa:on  of  good   human  beings,  purposeful  and  wise,  themselves   with  a  vision  of  what  it  is  to  be  human  and  of   the  kind  of  society  which  makes  that  possible.              Dr.  George  Carey          Former  Archbishop  of  Canterbury   I  now  understand  that  my  welfare  is   only  possible  if  I  acknowledge  my   unity  with  all  the  people  of  the   world  without  excep:on.                Leo  Tolstoy

  21. 21. Actions that benefit others -- single individuals or targeted groups, entire communities, the culture or society-at-large, the Earth’s resources… •  Social Capital is produced when people take action in the following areas: Social Justice, Economic Fairness, Political Activity, Cultural Enhancement, Ecological Preservation, and Ethical, Moral, and Spiritual Leadership Definition of Social Capital …as distinct from actions that are only taken only to benefit one’s own financial gain, status, power or authority, or how one is viewed in the eyes of others
  22. 22. Gemeinschaftsgefuhl (adj) (German) Ga-mein-shafts-ga-fuel lack of ego involvement; focusing on problems outside one’s self; social interest; feeling of kinship with others; democratic character structure; unhostile sense of humor; kindness; regard for fellow human beings. Filotomo (Greek) Giving of yourself and expecting nothing in return
  23. 23. No society can sustain itself unless its members have learned the sensitivities, motivations, and skills involved in assisting and caring for other human beings. Yet the school, which is the setting carrying primary responsibility for preparing young people for effective participation in adult life, does not, at least in American society, give high priority to providing opportunities in which such learning could take place. Uri Bronfenbrenner
  24. 24. It’s a simple, easily forgotten truth that we need one another. I sometimes think that history might easily say about this nation: “It was a great nation full of talented people with enormous energy who forgot that they needed one another.” John Gardner

  32. 32. Execu:ve  func:ons  are  broadly  defined  here  as  the  ability  to   engage  in  novel  situa:ons  that  require  planning,  decision-­‐ making,  troubleshoo:ng,  and  ethical  leadership  that  is  not   dependent  on  rou:ne  or  well-­‐rehearsed  responses  to   challenging  combina:ons  of  condi:ons.         It  involves  organizing,  integra6ng,  and  managing  informa6on,   emo6ons,  and  other  mental  func6ons  that  lead  to  “doing  the   right  thing”  in  situa6ons  that  do  not  have  a  predetermined  or   formulaic  driven  response.       These  func6ons  are  especially  important  to  highly  capable   people  because  of  their  access  to  extensive  amounts  of   knowledge  and  broad  range  of  experiences  within  and  across   disciplines.       Defini:on  of  Execu:ve  Func:ons  
  33. 33. Execu:ve  Func:on  skills  are   more  important  for  school   readiness  than  are  IQ  or  entry-­‐ level  reading  or  math.     (e.g.,  Blair,  2002;  2003;  Blair  &  Razza,  2007;  Normandeau  &   Guay,  1998)     Research shows that 5-year- olds today are behind in EFs compared with 5-year-olds of a couple of generations ago. (Smirnova, 1998; Smirnova & Gudareva, 2004)  
  34. 34. “What  I  think  is  important  on  the  road  to  success  is   learning  to  deal  with  failure,  to  manage  adversity.   That’s  a  skill  that  parents  can  certainly  help  their   children  develop—and  so  can  teachers  and  coaches   and  mentors.”     How  Children  Succeed:  Grit,  Curiosity,     and  the  Hidden  Power  of  Character                        Paul  Tough
