Publisher's Summary

In just a few years, today's children and teens will forge careers that look nothing like those that were available to their parents or grandparents. While the US economy becomes ever more information-driven, our system of education seems stuck on the idea that "content is king", neglecting other skills that 21st century citizens sorely need.
Becoming Brilliant offers solutions that parents can implement right now. Backed by the latest scientific evidence, this book introduces the "6Cs": collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation, and confidence, along with ways parents can nurture their children's development in each area.

very informative

A very good overview of the current scientific understanding about how humans learn. Explained and reinforced what I observe as a preschool staff member. The authors describe what parents can do to develop and support their child's learning in ways that can be addressed by parents no matter their socioeconomic situation. Worthwhile reading for the parent committed to their child's education.
