This classic video is an outstanding resource for elementary educators that shows them how to nourish and develop the genius in very young children. Based upon his best-selling book, "Awakening Genius in the Classroom" (published by ASCD), this video features Dr. Thomas Armstrong as he explores the history associated with genius, and debunks the narrow but widely held belief that genius is solely a function of performing well above average in tasks that require academic skills. Armstrong argues that there is genius in every child, which parents and teachers need to discover and awaken.
