A Guide to Developing Higher Order Thinking across the Curriculum.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
This guide (developed in response to a mandate from the Iowa General Assembly) is designed to help faculties and administrators in developing curriculum and improving instruction in higher order thinking skills. The guide synthesizes the varied and not always consistent ideas about thinking into an approach that will be useful to educators as they work to infuse higher order thinking into their teaching. The guide includes sections on general strategies for teaching thinking, explicit skills-based thinking instruction, and analyzing and evaluating the curriculum. The guide also contains an extensive bibliography with sections on essential references, professional materials, and staff development materials. Eight appendixes including a thinking skills checklist, a scale for rating effectiveness in developing thinking skills, a glossary of terms, and a list of classroom materials and resources available are attached.
