Review ""These five authors have spent much of their long and distinguished careers thinking about thinking and its cultivation. Their insights and practical guidance could not be more timely or needed:' ͠Jay McTighe, co-author of Understanding by Design" ""Readers will find a pleasant surprise: Every concept, every practice, every resource comes with a story...We are never left stranded in the laboratory but always find ourselves well situated in the real world of pedagogical practice. The mission is sensible, commendable, and exciting. I'm confident that it will engage a range of educators:'-From the Foreword by David Perkins, Harvard University Graduate School of Education" "This book provides accessible educational practices that teachers can use to infuse skillful thinking into standards-based content instruction in any subject area or grade level. With rich examples from practice, readers will learn to teach students how, for example, to find and use evidence to support conclusions, to develop and articulate creative ideas, to listen to others seriously and with understanding, and to communicate their thinking with clarity and precision. The authors demonstrate how taking time to frontload deliberate, selective thinking practices can propel students to higher levels of achievement. Specific chapters look at the role of metacognition in the classroom, translating good thinking into good writing, and assessment of progress in thinking." "Featuring the collaborative work of renowned authors and professional development leaders, this resource shows teachers how to help their students develop habits of effective thinking and dispositions for learning͠like persistence and self-regulation͠that will ultimately improve their work in other courses and grades and in their lives overall."--BOOK JACKET
