What is genius? What is Genius? What is the meaning of genius? Years of exposure to this kind of teaching drew me to the original meaning of the word “genius:” something each of us has rather than something a few of us are. How to teach all those learning styles? How to make diversity work? How to keep kids from cheating? Bullying? Dropping out? How to prepare citizens for democracy and leadership in a complex, changing world? How to get them to love to go to school every day? Treat them as if they each have a teacher within. Genius: Not a Rare Gift Definition: Gen·ius n 1. The tutelary spirit of a person, place, or institution.—The New Oxford American Dictionary, 2001 What is Genius? Part 1: Calli’s Love Life Finding genius is not about finding ability. Finding genius is about unlocking the creative potential of the human brain. Yes, educators should be finding The Genius in Every Child. That’s why I wrote the book. However, the genius we are looking for is the voice of their character, the engine of their curiosity, the source of their creativity, not some “strong natural ability.” Education is not about the strength that is obvious, but the genius that will lead the child to lead the life they are meant to lead. What is Genius? Part 2: Brian’s First Journey Transcending strengths and weaknesses, genius  guides us in the expression of our character and the discovery of our calling.
