About the Editor | Comments
Why teach thinking skills? What are the best strategies for teaching thinking in the classroom? What roles can technology play in the development of such expertise? And how can we assess a student’s mastery of thinking skills?
The 3rd edition of Developing Minds: A Resource Book for Teaching Thinking explores these questions and many more. Editor Arthur L. Costa has assembled an impressive array of authors and substantial new content reflecting changes in the education environment since the Revised Edition of this book appeared in 1991. Developing Minds explores how the teaching of thinking is evolving as we strive to better understand how the brain learns, effectively use technology in the classroom, and focus on assessment of student achievement.
This book helps to forge a common vision among the education community--teachers, administrators, librarians, staff developers, teacher educators, school board members, and parents--of what characterizes effective and creative thinkers and problem solvers. The goal of Developing Minds is to foster a world filled with classrooms, schools, and communities that are more thoughtful places.
