"In today's 'teach-to-the-test' climate, do we ever need a book about wisdom and creativity! Our focus as educators is enriched by this book."
—Robert Di Giulio, Professor
Johnson State College

"Creativity, wisdom, and trusteeship may each sound good enough in itself, but the contributors to this volume make a compelling case for how much they need one another."
—David Perkins, Professor
Harvard University

How do creativity, wisdom, and trusteeship translate into "excellent and ethical" educational practices?

This important new volume from Anna Craft, Howard Gardner, and Guy Claxton focuses on the need to educate for "wise creativity" so that students will learn to expand their perspectives and exercise their talents responsibly within their school community and in the real world.

The editors' theories, plus contributions from noted scholars Dean Keith Simonton, David Henry Feldman, Jonathan Rowson, Helen Haste, Patrick Dillon, Hans Henrik Knoop, Christopher Bannerman, Robert J. Sternberg, and Dave Trotman, develop a concept of teachers as "trustees," or respected, nonpartisan role models who can exercise wise creativity in their classrooms and cultivate this quality in their students.

The book explores a wide range of questions, such as:

  • What is the nature of creativity and wisdom and what does it mean to exercise a balance between the two?
  • What do creativity, wisdom, and trusteeship look like in society and in the school community?
  • How can schools educate for creativity tempered by wisdom?
  • What does it take to nurture trustee leadership in the classroom and schoolwide?

Thought-provoking and incisive, Creativity, Wisdom, and Trusteeship is essential reading for all members of the educational community.
