A volume in the series: Research in Educational Productivity. Editor(s): Herbert J. Walberg, University of Illinois - Chicago.

Published 2006

The Other Three R’s model began as an American Psychological Association (APA) initiative, sponsored by Robert J. Sternberg, IBM Professor of Psychology and Education at Yale University and Past President of the APA. For both this initiative and this edited volume, Sternberg assembled a diverse team of experts who identified reasoning, resilience and responsibility as three learnable skills that, when taken together, have great potential for increasing academic success. The authors of this volume present in detail their evidence-based arguments for promoting TOTRs in schools as a way to optimize student success.

REVIEWS
"...a good example of how theory can inform practice, and vice versa. In particular, as an educational psychologist, I found the clear explanations of important theories related to self-regulation, motivation, and learning generally, to be useful summaries of our current knowledge, and hence this work will be one I will want to keep on my bookshelf. ... I would say that this book is a pleasurable, easy read, offering clearly articulated theories and well-explained practical applications pertinent to the themes of reasoning, resilience, and responsibility." ~ Reviewed in Education Review by Elizabeth Smith Alexander, University of Texas at Austin
