Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Language Services Branch.
This resource book is intended to help teachers and schools enhance their teaching of thinking, and to make their teaching of thinking skills more deliberate, explicit, and an integral part of the school curricula. It challenges all educators to reflect on their involvement in teaching for thinking, teaching of thinking, and teaching about thinking. Chapter 1 offers a rationale for teaching thinking skills and defines the skillful thinker. Chapter 2 outlines roles of teachers, administrators, and students in developing a climate where thinking skill development can flourish. Chapter 3 suggests how an effective approach to teaching thinking can be implemented in a school community. Specific student activities are the major emphasis of chapter 4. Chapter 5 offers suggestions for evaluating thinking. An afterword, glossary of terms, 50 references, and extensive appendixes (including classroom and teacher planning materials) conclude the resource guide. (SR)
