100 Ideas for Primary Teachers Developing Thinking Skills [New Edition]
In a rapidly changing world most teachers and educationalists agree that it is vital for children to develop the key thinking skills necessary to develop the flexibility, creativity and analytical ability to engage effectively with the challenges of the future. Steve Bowkett’s book will be an invaluable aid to the classroom practitioner as it contains a host of practical ideas for helping children to develop these key skills. It provides the teacher with refreshingly clear guidance on delivering the ideas in the classroom along with suggestions for extension work and plenty of practical tips. Each idea is given a clear objective making it ideal for dipping into although many teachers will I suspect be consulting it regularly for input to enhance and hone their pupil’s thinking skills. * Tony Hitchman, former Primary headteacher * A wealth of practical ideas to get children thinking regularly. An excellent resource with suggestions for quick warm ups as well as extension ideas; a book for every teacher who understands the importance of thinking skills and successful learning. * Sue Dixon, Founder of the ‘Thinking child’ * This book will enable teachers and trainee teachers to have an immediate and exciting resource that can be used in developing thinking skills of the children they teach. * Barbara Newson, Assistand Programme Leader, Sufolk and Norfolk Primary School Centred Initial Teacher Training *
