Additional Book Details

Learning outside the box begins with a thought

The ability to memorize facts is not enough to equip students to solve problems or navigate an evolving world. If we educate young people to become flexible, metacognitive thinkers—and model that behavior for them— they will understand how to adapt their learning and successfully find their way in new territory. This book shows school leaders how to build a thinking culture within the entire learning community. Grounded in the research of the best proponents of critical thinking and aligned to one of the key goals of the Common Core State Standards, this practical guide provides numerous strategies to help teachers and leaders:

Shape the school culture so that it promotes a common vision around thinkingCreate classroom conditions that help students become mindful thinkersAsk questions that develop skillful thinkingHelp students formulate questions that facilitate problem solvingWork with parents to encourage skillful thinking in their children

Included are practical classroom strategies and illustrations, curriculum maps, and tools for developing students′ creativity and decision-making skills. This timely resource is ideal for preparing leaders, teachers, and students to meet the escalating challenges of the future.
