Teaching Thinking Skills in the Primary Years

A Whole School Approach

By Michael Pohl

The explicit teaching of thinking skills is acknowledged as an important element in developing students' thinking capacity. This book gives teachers a manageable framework for empowering students with thinking skills - the ability to reason, to make informed judgements, to critically evaluate information and to think creatively.

Through well directed modules on methods such as Six Thinking Hats, brainstorming, questioning techniques, thinking keys, graphic organisers, Blooms and problem solving, teachers are able to gain familiarity with a range of 'thinking' tools, develop strategies for their use and incorporate them into their classrooms.
