          About this ebook:

          Philosopher Jason Baehr presents a comprehensive resource guide for educators who are passionate about having a deep and lasting impact on the minds of their students.

          Spanning 562 pages and 34 chapters, the guide presents both the philosophical principles and practical strategies at the core of an intellectual virtues approach to education. Special attention is given to 9 foundational virtues -- curiosity, autonomy, humility, attentiveness, carefulness, thoroughness, open-mindedness, courage, and tenacity. These are the same virtues at the heart of the Intellectual Virtues Academy, a successful charter middle school in Long Beach, CA. IVA was co-founded by Baehr and is systematically implementing an intellectual virtues model of education.
