Energizing Learning
Swartz, Robert J.
Educational Leadership, v65 n5 p26-31 Feb 2008
During the last few decades, the author and his colleagues have developed an instructional framework for infusing thinking into content instruction in every subject and at every grade level. In thinking-based learning, teachers explicitly teach students thinking strategies and important habits of mind and then give students opportunities to apply these skills to curricular content. This article shows the framework in action in the classroom of a 7th grade science teacher who guides her students through a one-week lesson on energy sources. (Contains 2 figures.)
