Creating a culture of thinking is about more than just using a thinking tool or a graphic organiser with your class. To support students in learning to think, teachers must understand the theory of thinking themselves and be able to model it for their class Trying to create a thinking class when you haven’t trained your own thinking is like trying to teach someone to play guitar when you haven’t learned yourself!
Developing a Thinking Classroom provides background information supported by activities for teachers – not students! – to work through. It focuses on changing teachers’ approaches and attitudes so they can change the culture in their classrooms. Change in education is often seen as ‘hard’ but perhaps it can be easy. With the different ways of looking at teaching and learning presented in this book, you can create a culture change in your classroom
