The book, Light Up Your Child's Mind, teaches parents how to teach their children, in a way that would encourage enthusiasm and creativity, whether the creativity is driven by the sciences or arts.


From Hachette
Based on the renowned "Renzulli Method," which has been adopted in schools all over the country, LIGHT UP YOUR CHILD'S MIND presents a practical program to help children fire up a love of learning to last a lifetime. World-renowned experts Drs. Renzulli and Reis illustrate the crucial role parents can play in their children's development and address how they can work with teachers to enhance their children's education. They uncover the hidden potential of daydreamers, rebels, and one-track minds, arguing that gifted behavior--basic smarts, high levels of task commitment, and creativity--can be fostered in bright children, even unmotivated ones.

The Authors
Joseph S. Renzulli, Ph.D., is the Neag Professor of Gifted Education and Talent Development at the University of Connecticut and the Director of The National Research Center on the Gifted and Talented. He has received numerous distinguished research awards and been named, by the American Psychological Association's Monitor on Psychology, among the world's 25 most influential psychologists.

Sally M. Reis, Ph.D., is a professor and the Department Head of the Educational Psychology Department in the University of Connecticut Neag School of Education. She was awarded the Distinguished Service Award and named a Distinguished Scholar by the National Association for Gifted Children.
