If you ever wondered why some kids tap their feet in class, this is the book for you. In Their Own Way is Armstrong’s take on Howard Gardner’s work with Project Zero on multiple intelligences. Word smart, number smart, picture smart, music smart, body smart, people smart, self smart, and nature smart are the ways we are all smart. Some of us tend to use some of the ways we learn and see the world more than we do others. A very helpful book if you profess to teach anything, and one that I find delightful, informative, and transformative. It helped me to understand that I can’t teach anyone anything, but I can show them what they don’t know, and perhaps might be interested in learning.
