Using Thinking Skills To Enhance Learning.
Johnson, Andrew P.
In theory, effective thinking is a trait that is valued by schools at all levels; however, it is a skill that is very rarely taught. Teaching thinking skills explicitly and embedding them into a literacy curriculum can help students become more effective critical and creative thinkers. This article defines thinking skills, describes how they should be taught using the elements of effective skills instruction, and describes 18 specific critical and creative thinking skills that can be used across the curriculum at any level. (Contains 10 references and a figure that outlines 10 critical thinking and 8 creative thinking skills.) (Author/RS)
