Tools For Change. Second Edition, Preliminary Version.
Kindred, Lucinda L., Ed.
An introduction for teachers to Tools for Change, a new course in problem-solving, is provided by this sourcebook. The major assumptions and rationale underlying the course are explained and the most significant concepts involved--such as heuristics and problem-solving--are scrutinized. Examples of problems and process-oriented problem-solving are given and serve as an introduction to a discussion of how to teach problem-solving, connect it with other academic subjects, assess student needs, and motivate pupils. The importance of the process approach to the world at large, to teacher education, and to schools in general is briefly examined. A glossary of heuristic terms and a short bibliography are also included. (For related documents, see EM 011 404, 406.) (PB)
