Designing a Thinking Curriculum

ACER review 
Designing a Thinking Curriculum provides education professionals with ideas for the implementation of the thinking curriculum in their schools. Aimed at curriculum coordinators, education authority policymakers and teachers, the book comprises commentary and advice from leading experts in the field. Teacher educators and curriculum consultants describe how they have been influenced by theorists, their use of appropriate cognitive theories, and strategies they have developed that will assist teachers to foster higher order thinking skills in their students. The authors suggest strategies for accommodating a variety of student learning styles and provide guidelines for establishing supportive school structures to implement the curriculum.
