Author: Richard M. Langworth, Howard Gardner
Howard Gardner's brilliant conception of individual competence has changed the face of education in the twenty-three years since the publication of his classic work, Frames of Mind. Since then thousands of educators, parents, and researchers have explored the practical implications and applications of Multiple Intelligences theory - the powerful notion that there are separate human capacities, ranging from musical intelligence to the intelligence involved in self-understanding. The first decade of research on MI theory and practice was reported in the 1993 edition of Multiple Intelligences. This new edition covers all developments since then and stands as the most thorough and up-to-date account of MI available anywhere. Completely revised throughout, it features new material on global applications and on MI in the workplace, an assessment of MI practice in the current conservative educational climate, new evidence about brain functioning, and much more.

(Schott). Teacher and performer Doug Goodkin presents an overview of the dynamic approach to music education known as Orff Schulwerk.

Carl Orff's educational ideas could not have an advocate more well equipped by fortune and disposition. Inspired initially by Avon Gillespie, who embodied playing, singing and dancing, Doug Goodkin also brings to his teaching a first-hand, intensive experience of the indigenous music and dance of many continents and peoples.

Se, na moda, os anos 80 são o que há de mais kitsch e não devem ser revividos, na indústria do entretenimento a história é outra. A década lançou vários grupos de rock, viu surgir diversas companhias de dança e teatro e, de quebra, iniciou o processo de revitalização do cinema nacional. Há uma certa ironia de que nos anos 80, paralelamente a um processo de liberdade política, uma geração nascia e crescia sob a influência da cultura de massa americana e a sociedade de consumo. Depois de sete anos de pesquisa intensa, o jornalista Guilherme Bryan resolveu contar a história desses artistas. O resultado é 'Anos 80 - Quem tem um sonho não dança', que reúne o depoimento de quase 180 personalidades.
