Intelligence: A Bedford Spotlight Reader explores pervasive questions about the concept of intelligence: How do we judge intelligence in people, animals, and even machines? Where do our assumptions about intelligence come from? What does it mean to display genius-level intellect? How do we measure intelligence and is it affected by our identities? Readings by essayists, scientists, journalists, scholars, and inventors take up these questions and more. Questions and assignments for each selection provide a range of activities for students.  The Bedford Spotlight Reader Series is an exciting line of single-theme readers, each reflecting Bedford’s trademark care and quality. An editorial board of a dozen compositionists at schools with courses focusing on specific themes assists in the development of the series. Each reader collects thoughtfully chosen selections sufficient for an entire writing course—about 35 pieces—to allow instructors to provide carefully developed, high-quality instruction at an affordable price. Bedford Spotlight Readers are designed to help students from all majors make sustained inquiries from multiple perspectives, opening up topics such as food, gender, happiness, language, music, science and technology, subcultures, and sustainability to critical analysis. The readers are flexibly arranged in thematic chapters, with each chapter focusing in depth on a different facet of the central topic. The instructor resource tab of each reader’s catalog page includes instructor support with sample syllabi and additional teaching resources.
