9780807750124: Teaching for Thinking Today: Theory, Strategies, and Activities for the K-8 Classroom

These are turbulent times. We live in a climate of vigorous testing and memorization, so how can we both engage and challenge our children to learn and become thinking citizens in our society? In her invaluable new book, Selma Wassermann takes a step forward from Louis Rath s seminal work and gives us some truly helpful answers to this modern dilemma. Using new data from her extensive field work, Wassermann (a co-author of Teaching for Thinking, Second Edition) provides a wealth of innovative classroom strategies that will enable and empower students to grasp the big ideas across virtually all curriculum areas and apply this knowledge to problem solving. Using a teacher-friendly style, this practical book provides the theoretical framework, tools, and teaching strategies to implement teaching-for-thinking programs in K 8 classrooms. It offers applications for classroom implementation in key curriculum areas of science, math, language arts, social studies, computer studies, art, and music; it demonstrates how the standard classroom curriculum can be tweaked to emphasize higher-order cognitive skills.

Review:

As a teacher in 1967 I used the first edition of "Teaching for Thinking" to guide my work with students. Selma Wassermann has now woven together imaginatively new theory, strategies, and activities for thinking into a treasure trove for another generation of teachers committed to inquiry and cultivating student thinking. Bravo! --Larry Cuban, Professor Emeritus of Education, Stanford University

Selma Wassermann's narratives capture well the substance and spirit of ideas related to teaching for thinking developed earlier by Louis Raths, with her significant help. The text shares how recent research and development have enriched our understandings of the power of the thinking theory presented here and the efficacy of its classroom applications. --James Raths, Professor Emeritus, University of Delaware
