This book provides accesible educational practices that teachers can use to infuse skillful thinking into standards-based content instruction in any subject area or grade level. With rich examples from practice, readers will learn to teach students how, for example, to find and use evidence to support conclusions, to develop and articulate creative ideas, to listen to others seriously and with understanding, and to communicate their thinking with clarity and precision. The authors demonstrate how taking time to frontload deliberate, selective thinking practices can take students to higher levels of achievement. Specific chapters look at the role of metacognition in the classroom, translating good thinking into good writing, and assessment of progress in thinking.
