Teaching Thinking to Chapter I Students. Technical Report No. 473.
Arguing that the goal of the development of thinking skills for the low-achieving student is within reach, this paper contends that an effective course on thinking skills should result in a single, well-integrated schema which is built upon the principles and processes that the course is intended to develop and should be elaborated with concrete applications. The paper reviews and critiques several existing thinking skills curricula in terms of their pedagogical structure and documented effectiveness. The paper concludes with a discussion of efforts to develop an effective and usable curriculum on thinking skills anchored in contemporary theory and research in cognitive science. (One table of data and 10 figures are included; 71 references and two footnotes are attached.) (RS)
