About

How can teachers help students develop the literacy and problem-solving skills critical to becoming independent learners ready to tackle not only their immediate academic challenges but also the real-world problems they will face as adults? Asking students to memorize and recite facts isn′t the answer. Instead, says Rhoda Koenig, educators must deliberately cultivate thinking skills and build the strategies that empower students to boost their own learning--for keeps.
