The Hungry Mind : The Origins of Curiosity in Childhood, Paperback Book

The Hungry Mind : The Origins of Curiosity in Childhood Paperback

Description

Despite American education's mania for standardized tests, testing misses what matters most about learning: the desire to learn in the first place.

Susan Engel offers a highly readable exploration of what curiosity is, how it can be measured, how it develops in childhood, and how educators can put curiosity at the center of the classroom.
