"Creating Thinking Classrooms:" Leading Educational Change for This Century
Gini-Newman, Garfield; Case, Roland
Critical, creative and collaborative thinking should be at the centre of all 21st century teaching and learning. "Creating Thinking Classrooms" is loaded with examples, stories and strategies for reinvigorating schools with this quality thinking. Written for leaders who support teachers, this guide treats educational change as a process of renovation, rather than process of revolution, and emphasizes building upon, refining and sustaining the many good things happening in today's schools. Practical and user-friendly, it emphasizes five key principles for learning and teaching: (1) Engaging students; (2) Sustaining inquiry; (3) Nurturing self-regulated learners; (4) Creating assessment-rich learning; and (5) Enhancing learning through digital technology. As a balanced and reasoned response to the challenges and opportunities facing schools, this book separates the rhetoric of school reform from reality by analyzing what's actually happening and offering a plan educators can use. Recapture the fundamentals of classroom learning with a practical and powerful roadmap charting the way forward.
