Endorsements

“I have worked extensively with Harry T. Roman for many years, publishing his outstanding books on STEM, Technology Education, Science, and Creativity. His in-depth knowledge of engineering subjects and technology is clearly reflected in the challenging lessons designed for gifted and advanced students. He provides many practical lessons on Creativity, Planning, Responsibility, Communications, and Lifetime Learning obtained from the workshop of his greatest teacher – his father.  He is also a prolific writer, highly creative thinker, retired engineer, and currently has twelve U.S. patents.

"Harry shows gifted students and their teachers how to combine technological and scientific knowledge with different areas of the humanities such as history and literature. He views education as being holistic and directed toward combining a practical technology approach with the liberal arts. It should be emphasized that all of his books are congruent with Common Core Standards of Technology and STEM Education.

“I personally guarantee you will like Invention and Innovation, as well as his seven other books on Creative Thinking, STEM and Environmental Education. If you are not completely satisfied with any of these books, send them back for a full refund including postage & handling. You can order them directly from Gifted Education Press or via Amazon.com.  Please read the following wonderful statements by teachers, technology experts, and professors about Invention and Innovation. Thank you.”

Invention, Innovation and Creative Thinking in the Gifted Classroom—a book in 68 pages done with perfect effectiveness! Author, educator, inventor and engineer, Harry T. Roman has offered in his newest publication an extraordinary compilation of activities and strategies that challenge students in middle and high school. With its immediate and intelligent applicability to the classroom learning experience, this text should be requisite for every teacher dedicated to igniting creativity and innovation in the classroom. Roman’s work has the capacity to energize and challenge any bright, motivated student eager to invent and problem solve. It offers specific activities, skills and suggestions for developing innovation in application. All of the invention lessons encourage the teacher to initiate perceptively a STEM learning environment for enabling problem solving. H. Roman, as a retired engineer, inventor, STEM educator, and holder of several patents, stands as a singular contributor to the field of science, creativity, and gifted education. Invention, Innovation and Creative Thinking in the Gifted Classroom merits the careful attention of every educator. It should be on the shelf of every teacher resource center.”

Joan Franklin Smutny, Director

The Center for Gifted, and the Midwest Torrance Center for Creativity

Glenview, IL


"Once again, Harry T.Roman has crafted and penned a book that will give any teacher a way to bring more inventive ideas to the classroom. Mr. Roman’s new book, Invention, Innovation and Creative Thinking in the Gifted Classroom, is an idea rich STEM source that covers the history of invention through the practical application of using inventing as an integral part of any STEM discovery in the classroom.  This book is peppered with historical and anecdotal references about Harry’s two favorite inventors, Thomas Edison and his beloved problem solving mentor and father, Harry the TV Repairman.  Lessons from both of these sources will give the reader insight on how to excite their students to be an integral part of the inventing process.

"Throughout the book Harry gives practical information about how to stir the imagination of students to become practical problem solvers and inventors.  The ideas in the book share the integral parts of determining a problem, and the ways to innovate and experiment to solve those problems.  Harry’s rich sources of ideas go from the practical design challenge of building a floating structure from a single piece of paper, to determining how to renovate old and abandoned factory buildings to be once again used productively and contribute to the national economy.

"Adding this book to your library will not only serve as a practical reference for the history of the inventing field, but also serve as a teaching resource to bring those lessons to the classroom."

Martha Van Loon

Grade Six Science Teacher

Edison Middle School    West Orange, NJ


"Invention, Innovation and Creative Thinking in the Gifted Classroom is another comprehensive work from Harry Roman.  This book, while being written for the gifted and talented teacher can easily be applied across disciplines to any classroom scenario that would lend itself to design and problem solving.  Mr. Roman’s unique experience as an inventor and an educator shines through in his comprehensive guides for classroom activities.  He also brings a unique perspective to the teaching of invention, drawing from his relationships with classroom teachers in multiple school districts.  His experiences and interactions within these classrooms have shaped his common-sense, practical approach to engaging students in hands-on, minds-on learning.  This book is a great resource for teachers who enjoy implementing inexpensive design problems in their classroom."

Kenneth Zushma

Technology Education Teacher, Heritage Middle School, Livingston, NJ

Former Executive Director, New Jersey Technology & Engineering Educators Association


"In one book, writer and inventor Harry Roman has managed to jell the essence of how to think and develop a creative mind.  The interspersing quotes and examples of well-known world-changing inventions from past inventors provide a relaxing pause to the technical aspects involved in developing an inventive disposition.  He challenges students to devise alternative solutions to everyday products reminding them that failure to improve the product is really not failure but a way in which they can exercise their mind to ‘see things differently’ thereby developing a creative mindset."

Charles Dzuba  Invention Historian—New Jersey Inventors Hall of Fame


"Mr. Roman provides step-by-step examples to implement creative STEM activities in the classroom. He also provides discussion questions that further enhance and deepen student learning.

"I recommend this book not only to G & T teachers but also regular classroom and special needs teachers. There is something that appeals not only to every teacher, but more importantly, to every learner."

Susan Bermeo, Science Teacher
Hillside Elementary School
   Montclair, NJ


"This book shows educators of the gifted and their students the importance of the workplace in American technology and innovation as exemplified by Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and Steve Jobs. Mr. Roman effectively conveys this tradition by providing many historical examples, particularly through Thomas Edison’s achievements.

"He also gives a detailed discussion of the patent process, and presents numerous practical and challenging exercises. Invention, Innovation and Creative Thinking in the Gifted Classroom will help the new generation to continue this tradition of invention and innovation. The author is an inventor who currently holds twelve U.S. patents – he knows what he is talking about.  Harry Roman is an important resource for our schools and nation."

Professor Michael E. Walters   Touro College   New York City, and Center for the Study of the Humanities in the Schools


"Harry Roman has done it again! Invention, Innovation and Creative Thinking in the Gifted Classroom presents a perfect opportunity for students to explore their imaginations as they create numerous possibilities to meet the challenges that Mr. Roman presents. The creative mind is nurtured, fed and in a state of constant evolution as students delve into his activities. I love it. It's SNIBBLES on steroids!"

Judy Micheletti   Berwick, PA
Master's of Education in Gifted Education
Author of SNIBBLES 1, 2 and 3


"As is usual with his exciting and exhaustive books, Harry T. Roman's new Invention, Innovation and Creative Thinking in the Gifted Classroom is a treasure trove of ideas for an open-minded teacher.

"Roman offers so many excellent ideas for sparking gifted students in their heads and hands that he is in danger of overwhelming the reader.  Nevertheless, it boggles the mind that one individual can think of so much that would improve not only the youngsters who might be lucky enough to have a teacher responsive to Roman's offerings, but also society and mankind."

Background Statement from Our Senior Stem Author, Harry T. Roman:

“My love affair with teaching started in high school when an inspirational science teacher taught our class to think multi-dimensionally. From that point on, my education took on a powerful new direction. To help pay my college tuition, I tutored in a local high school, assisting students to master algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. In my 36-year engineering career, I guest lectured at many schools and worked with teachers in professional development seminars to bring the power and excitement of science, technology, invention, and math into their classrooms……to show students how teamwork, creativity, and integrated thinking solves real-world problems. I continue working with teachers, writing about STEM in the classroom, and capturing those years of experience in resource books you can use in your gifted classroom. My inspirational science teacher gave me a passion for life-long education; and I want to pass that along to other teachers. I hope you will consider my books, and the decades of experience I have built into each one.”

Heroes of Giftedness: An Inspirational Guide for Gifted Students and Their Teachers

Presenting the Personal Heroes of Twelve Experts on Gifted Education

(ISBN 0-910609-58-6)

Maurice D. Fisher, Ph.D. & Eugenia M. Fisher, Ed.D.     Editors

"Heroes of Giftedness: An Inspirational Guide is an exciting new edition to gifted education literature.  It well fulfills its purpose in the inspiring, exhilarating accounts of famous individuals and their contribution to the world.  Gifted students, teachers, and parents will benefit hugely from these biographies of great men and women who overcame personal and professional challenges to move forward in their fields.  The book is a singular compilation of biographies and offers many inside perspectives and anecdotal perceptions of heroes representing science, engineering, and inventing; medicine and biology; literature and poetry; art, dance, and the media.  Role models abound.  Gifted children and the adults who work with them will benefit from this compilation of heroes who are persons and distinct imparters to humanity.  Maurice Fisher has done something wonderful for all of us in gifted education.  We look forward to further editions."    Joan Smutny, Director    The Center for Gifted      National-Louis University

"My view of the world is that people are best served when they find their passion early on, because we tend to be good at things we're passionate about. I think we also need to find people whom we admire and try to emulate them."   Chesley Sullenberger, the Captain who successfully guided US Airways flight 1549 in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009 (From Air & Space Magazine, May 2009, p. 11)
