Never before have we had access to such a flood of information – internet, tv, radio, mobile phones, etc. But what strategies are children developing to screen it all? They can access information and absorb it as entertainment, but they often lack the skills to approach it critically. For our students to flourish in the information age, it’s crucial that we teach them to think. Using the PRICE taxonomy – Processing information, Reasoning, Inquiry, Creative thinking and Evaluation, Anne de A’Echevarria and Ian Patience identify a range of ‘thinking problems’. Their five related sections of practical ‘thinking tools’ will inspire teachers and students alike: there’s a wealth of dynamic material for individual lessons and for infusing thinking across the curriculum. The final chapter moves from the ‘what’ to the ‘how’ – the craft of teaching thinking. Travel with your students out of the comfort zone into the exciting landscape of the learning zone.
