Architects of the Intellect.
Fogarty, Robin
Based on the work of theorists Dewey, Piaget, Vygotsky, Feuerstein, Gardner, and Diamond, this paper presents the constructivist or brain compatible classroom as illustrated by descriptions of classroom activities of students from kindergarten through twelfth grade. The paper explores how teachers, the "new architects of the intellect," incorporate three critical elements as they bridge theory and practice: (1) the teacher's creative genius; (2) the complex tooling for instructional excellence; and (3) systems of interconnectivity to frame curriculum. The report also describes classroom activities using problem-based learning, case studies, themes, project-based learning, service learning, and performance learning that promote the construction of knowledge and meaning-making in the mind of the learner.
