The “I” of the Beholder: A Guided Journey to the Essence of a Child
by: Annemarie Roeper, Ed.D.
In this book, renowned giftedness expert Annemarie Roeper explains her view of the inner Self of a gifted child and how that leads to her philosophy of education for gifted children. She believes that parents and teachers who understand the child can maximize the unique Self of that child and, in turn, create a more harmonious world, both now and in the future. Annemarie Roeper and her husband George founded the Roeper City and Country School in Detroit, Michigan, after immigrating to the United States from Nazi Germany. The school promoted a philosophy of community living and support for the growth of the academic, social, and emotional development of each child. In the 1950s, the school’s mission changed to focus on the specific needs of the gifted. Although Annemarie has passed, the Roeper School continues to exemplify the Roepers’ philosophy of rich learning environments, individualized instruction, and creative expression.
