The Whole-Brain Solution is a collection of higher-order thinking tools for enlivening students' receptivity, deepening their understanding, and increasing their ability to connect knowledge to their own lives. When higher-order thinking tools are engaged, students' interest and involvement in the information increase, and there are more "Now I see!" moments, more insights into the purpose of the information and the benefits of applying it. This practical book shows teachers how to help students develop critical and creative thinking skills and go beyond simple memorizing and factual recall.
