  3. Developing Minds: A Resource Book for Teaching Thinking

    What are 'thinking skills'? Can they be taught? And can they be taught as part of the standard curriculum? Developing Minds rejuvenates our focus on thinking throughout the curriculum, using five themes. The first, focusing on students' capacity to think, is an obvious, immediate goal. The others - thinking to learn, thinking together, thinking about thoughtfulness and thinking big - are more complex and require longer-range attention. This book helps to forge a common vision throughout the education community of what characterises effective and creative thinkers and problem-solvers.
