Sparapani, Ervin F.
Clearing House, v71 n5 p274-76 May-Jun 1998
Examines six constraints on teachers' ability to promote higher-order thinking in the classroom (schedule, student attitudes, teacher attitudes, resources, atmosphere, and assessment). Explores possibilities for overcoming such constraints, including block scheduling, integration of the curriculum and thematic teacher, portfolio assessment, cooperative learning groups, and brain-based learning/teaching.
