Description

Implementing Thinking Skills Across the School

The Thinking School: The Book:

Thinking tools are the strategies or scaffolding through which students can access the curriculum. They are devices that have been developed specifically to improve children’s thinking by:

  • Creating a visual focus on an issue that needs to be resolved
  • Offering immediate feedback through seeing their ideas on paper
  • Seeing the big picture
  • Making new connections
  • Analysing complex situations
  • Developing new critical thinking skills
  • Creating new ideas and products

In this exciting new resource, Ralph Pirozzo offers teachers an introduction to the world of thinking tools, covering a range of devices for different tasks and guiding teachers as how to choose the most appropriate tool for each situation.

The Thinking School Poster Set (36 x A3 Posters)

It is essential that any thinking skills being modelled and taught are implemented school-wide in a clear manner of scope and sequence as part of a consistent and thorough thinking skills program. This 36 full-colour, A3 posters aim to assist in this important process by visually representing the specific thinking tools in Ralph Pirozzo’s The Thinking School: Implementing Thinking Skills Across the School. The easily displayable, quick-reference guides are the perfect resource to reinforce the thinking tools outlined in the book, providing teachers, administrators and students with quick memory aids that can be posted in the classroom, office or corridor.
