Recognizing and Developing Spiritual Abilities through Real-Life Problem Solving
Maker, C. J.
Gifted Education International, v32 n3 p271-306 Sep 2016
In this article, the author describes a different theory of multiple abilities, the Prism Model, developed with Usanee Anuruthwong from Thailand, and further evolved with Belle Wallace from the UK and Leonie Kronborg from Australia. Using this model, insights gained will be shared that have been gained from working with children and adults from different cultures, especially the Diné people in northern Arizona, USA, and my journey toward development of my spiritual awareness and abilities. These insights will help readers find their own ways to recognize and develop these abilities in their students. Our current work with the Real Engagement in Active Problem Solving model will illustrate practical ways educators can develop spiritual abilities in classroom contexts while teaching the required academic content.
