Description

From the vantage of new cognitive theory, this book manages to integrate the thinking skill mission across the full range of formal instruction, from K through graduate school. It explores and prioritizes thinking skill aims at each instructional level, and then details how classroom practice can adjust to achieve those aims.

This guide leads to solid ground, perspective and technique for the individual teacher at any level who wants to enhance thinking skill development. It will prove indispensable to those planning curriculum with a thinking skill emphasis.

Reviews

"We have a little over 2 million teachers in America's schools and colleges. The best way to improve our educational system, stem to stern, would be for all of them to read this book during their Christmas break."

Dr. Harold Hodgkinson

formerly Director, NIE
