Quick Overview

Thinking about Thinking in IB Schools: How We Know What We Know is
intended to complement and supplement the curriculum of international schools,
and those utilising the International Baccalaureate program. The discussions
within this resource target the "think links", connectors between subject matter
and relevant processes across and with the learning areas. Each chapter
features instructional strategies to teach, practise and apply deeper thinking
with the rich and rigorous content of the international curricula. Seven thinking
skill areas are delineated and each of the seven chapters features a lively
discussion, explicit ways of thinking about particular ways of thinking and engaging
strategies to involve students in the act of deep thinking about the required
content.

Thinking about Thinking in IB Schools: How We Know What We Know by Robin Fogarty and Brian Pete is intended to complement and supplement the curriculum framework of international schools, particularly those that utilise the International Baccalaureate program. The driving questions that undergirds the book – “How do we know what we know?” – is the quintessential question that drives our quest to learn, explore, investigate and, in the end, validate and justify.

The discussions within this resource target the micro-skills of thinking, or the “think links” that act like connectors between subject matter and relevant processes across and within the learning areas. These target skills include analysing, evaluating, comparing and contrasting, generalising, making inferences, discerning cause and effect, imagining, visualising and hypothesising. Each chapter features instructional strategies to teach, practise and apply deeper thinking with the rich and rigorous content of the international curricula.

Within Thinking about Thinking, seven thinking skill areas are delineated and each of the seven chapters features a lively discussion, explicit ways of thinking about particular ways of thinking and engaging strategies to involve students in the act of deep thinking about the required content. In addition, the chapters showcase compelling stories that serve to illustrate key points, and offer specific and explicit transfer strategies to illustrate how to foster immediate, authentic transfer and application to the F–12 classroom.
