Dimensions of Thinking and Cognitive Instruction
Beau Fly Jones, Lorna Idol
L. Erlbaum, 1990 - Education - 555 pages
By establishing a conceptual framework and a common language for educators to work together, this volume attempts to answer the challenge facing all teachers -- how can students improve the quality of their thinking? Methods of strengthening the thought process include: helping students learn to monitor their attention and commitments; asking questions that require students to organize, analyze, and integrate information; setting tasks that involve complex processes such as problem solving and research; and modeling and reinforcing fair-mindedness.
