The Thinking Teacher's Toolkit

This is a complete guide to planning for and teaching critical thinking in schools, whether for discrete assessment or to improve analytical skills across the curriculum. National strategies across the globe are increasingly emphasizing the need to enhance pupils thinking skills to respond to employers' requirements. Most schools now offer qualifications in critical thinking in some form or another, be it an AS level or Pre-U qualification, and it's down to teachers with little or no previous experience of the subject to teach it. "The Thinking Teacher's Toolkit" will equip new and existing teachers of critical thinking with the skills and confidence to deliver vibrant and thought-provoking lessons. With a clear introduction to what critical thinking skills are, clear approaches to preparing to teach, lesson plans and ideas for integrating critical thinking skills across the curriculum, as well as advice on how to handle assessment, this is the ultimate toolkit for any teacher wanting to improve their students reasoning and problem-solving skills.
