The Thinking/Learning System: A Brain-Compatible Strategy for Effective Teaching of Higher-Order Thinking and Learning.
Sparapani, Ervin F.; Edwards, Peter
The Thinking/Learning System is designed to provide students at all educational levels with learning experiences based on conceptual frameworks which transcend the limitations of content. The system was developed around four specific thinking skills (information gathering, critical thinking, decision making, and creative thinking) that are essential elements of effective thinking. Independent thinking is addressed through the freedom of choice and mode of expression allowed the individual. The role of the teacher is to guide and direct students to select appropriate and challenging experiences. The system enables teachers to cope realistically with the number and variety of learning materials available to students. The Thinking/Learning System was developed to give students the opportunity to develop the higher-order thinking skills and innovative techniques that will allow them to meet the challenge posed by a complex, technological world. (Contains 14 references and three figures illustrating aspects of the system.) (RS)
