                                                     Teaching 21 Thinking Skills for the 21st Century: The MiCOSA Model

 Carol Robinson-Zañartu,  Pat ricia Doerr, and Jacqueline Portman

 

 

Practical help for teaching students how to succeed at learning through the diversity and challenges of the 21st century by equipping them with 21 powerful thinking skills that enhance critical thinking, collaboration and achievement.

 

In this hands-on guide, the authors show how to develop students' thinking skills across the curriculum through a framework of mediation. The book details 21 essential critical thinking skills, using case examples from real classrooms to illustrate each skill. Included are multiple video clips and over 100 classroom strategies, from conventional to technological, to augment and support the examples of the mediation. When educators follow this model, which the authors call the MiCOSA Model, students begin to think more deeply, clearly, and precisely, and become engaged with 21st century learning, with critical thinking, collaboration, and innovation at the core.

 

"A rare balance of cultural education, critical thinking skills, and 21st century skills... The thinking strategies in this book are excellent.  There are many great examples that teachers could implement immediately."

 - Ian McCoog, K-12 Technology Integration Specialist/ Technology, Southern Columbia Area School District, Catawissa, PA

From the Back Cover:

&>

This hands-on guide shows teachers how to develop students' thinking skills across the curriculum through a framework of mediation. The book details 21 essential critical thinking skills, using case examples from real classrooms to illustrate each skill. The acronym MiCOSA, Mediation in the Classroom: An Open Systems Approach to critical thinking and learning, captures the essence of the model. It supports thoughtful delivery of the Common Core State Standards, as well as transfer of learning to prepare students for independent thinking beyond the classroom. Multiple video clips* and over 200 classroom strategies, from conventional to technological, augment and support examples of the mediation. When educators follow the MiCOSA Model, students begin to think more deeply, clearly, and precisely, and become engaged with 21st century learning, with critical thinking, collaboration and innovation at the core.

  

"A rare balance of cultural education, critical thinking skills, and 21st century skills...The thinking strategies in this book are excellent.  There are many great examples that teachers could implement immediately."

-      Ian McCoog, K-12 Technology Integration Specialist/ Technology, Southern Columbia Area School District, Catawissa, PA

 “Although the phrase ‘critical thinking’ is not new, the approach of this book is REVOLUTIONARY! All these years we’ve been told to teach students how to think, but we've not been taught how to teach thinking.  I’m so grateful to have this book as a resource. Being taught how to think should be every child’s birthright – nationally and internationally.”

 - Kasjia Butcher,  8th grade teacher, Los Cerritos Middle School, Conejo Valley Unified School District, Thousand Oaks, CA

“The authors do a fantastic job of giving practical strategies and activities I can use in the classroom to not just model, but to mediate conversations to increase thinking skills and develop self-initiative and self-directedness in students....The pedagogical devices were among the most helpful I have ever seen.”  

- Terri Foughty, Newcastle Public Schools

 “I would be inclined to use this as a shared book in a Professional Learning Community. I think it would promote powerful conversation.”

 - Cheryl Turner, West Clermont School District
