The Intelligent School – MacGilchrist et al




The Intelligent School
Barbara MacGilchrist, Kate Myers and Jane Reed 2004 (Sage)

‘The Intelligent School offers a practical resource for schools to enable them to maximize their improvement efforts. In this fully revised edition, the authors set out the most recent messages from four inter-related areas of research:
School effectiveness
School improvement
Effective teaching
Effective learning
They illustrate, with practical example, how these findings can be pieced together through the use of a combination of nine intelligences to improve teaching and learning and to strengthen a school’s capacity to achieve its goal successfully.

Some new intelligences are identified along with fresh thinking about intelligences and their dynamic relationship. Intelligent schooling in the future is also explored.’
