Summary

In the seventh grade, L. Todd Rose was suspended -- not for the first time -- for throwing six stink bombs at the blackboard, where his art teacher stood with his back to the class. At 18 years old, he was a high school dropout, stocking shelves at a department story for $4.25 an hour. Sixteen years later, Rose was a faculty member at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In SQUARE PEG, Rose takes us on an uncommon, personal journey that illuminates what it means to be a child who learns differently, or a parent or teacher a child who learns differently. He has concentrated scientific research into explanations and tips that will be meaningful for the many parents and educators with children and students who can sometimes be difficult to care for or teach. At the conclusion of each chapter, Rose has distilled the big ideas and action items from that chapter, making SQUARE PEG a functional guide, in addition to a compelling narrative.
