This synopsis centers on Eleanor Duckworth's ideas about the relationship between education and intellectual development. Specifically, Duckworth described the essence of intellectual development as the "having of wonderful ideas" and the essence of pedagogy as the creation of occasions to "have wonderful ideas." As opposed to accepting the persistent, pernicious educational belief that there is a single, best way to understand and a single, best way of explaining this understanding, Duckworth determined that all children can come to comparable, equally satisfactory, wonderful understandings when provided occasions to do so.
