This book explains, with examples, how teachers can research their classrooms with their pupils to enhance the gifts and talents they bring into their own learning and education. The examples show how the stories of their own learning about their gifts and talents, by teachers researching with pupils, can transform how education is understood in schools. The key to this transformation in understanding are recent developments in multi-media representations of social and emotional aspects of learning. These representations permit the multi-sensorial gifts and talents of individual learners to be recognized and developed within a process that enhances the emotionally literate space of enquiring classrooms. The book is supported by a website with access to these multi-media accounts. The Website also contains some 6 video-clips of 1.50 - 5.00 minutes each that will illustrate the expression of gifts and talents in the pedagogies of Hymer, Huxtable and Whitehead with teachers and pupils.
