Study Up For 'Think': Smarts, Off The Charts
If a kid's future doesn't really depend on her or his IQ score, then how do we measure potential? Psychologist and educator Scott Barry Kaufman was placed into a special ed class as a kid. Now, he's finding other ways to quantify a child's gifts from his post at New York University. His new book is Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined, and he'll talk to Think host Krys Boyd at noon.
Kaufman breaks down the types of cognition - "kinds of smart" - that aren't always on the rubric in this article for Huffington Post.
Listen to Think from noon to 2 p.m., and again from 8 to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday on KERA 90.1 FM or stream if you like.
