Promoting Thinking Skills in Education
Glevey, Kwame E.
London Review of Education, v4 n3 p291-302 Nov 2006
How children are guided in the development of their thinking is now crucial in the twenty-first century. Over the past decades special thinking skills programmes have been developed to enhance thinking but these programmes have so far been unable to produce clear evidence to support their effectiveness. This article argues that due to the complex nature of thinking some fundamental changes in education must be tackled if all children are to be encouraged to develop and enhance their own particular ways of thinking.
