Brave Learner Book Club: Four Capacities for Learning
The Four Capacities for Learning are:
- and celebration.
These are the nutrients of brave learning.
Why do we recommend making an “outrageous presumption of curiosity?” What does it mean to collaborate by following your child “as his leader,” as Maria Montessori suggests? How do we help children move from curiosity to contemplative learning? How does celebration of sincere effort lead children to risk challenging themselves? How do these questions apply to older kids and teens?
Let’s talk about how to implement the Four Capacities for Learning. We’ll focus on helping our kids sustain their interests and get the academics they need.
