Genius or Dynamic Learner? Benjamin Franklin's Path to Greatness
Marcum, James W.
Social Studies, v99 n3 p99-104 May-Jun 2008
While the remarkable accomplishments of Benjamin Franklin are unparalleled, the means of their attainment can be considered more accessible to ordinary people and not necessarily attributable to a special genius. The steady development of Franklin's knowledge and skills is traced in light of a new model of "dynamic learning," which is a method that can be followed by many. The method involves reading, writing, collaboration, and active, hands-on experience. Simple steps are suggested for testing the method in the classroom. (Lesson Plan is appended.)
