Reflections on Classroom Thinking Strategies has sold 35,000 copies and remains a trusted and inspiring resource for teachers from Prep to University. A highly practical guide and motivational read, Reflections will help every teacher, trainer and leader feel more confident in weaving thinking tools into everyday learning to create their thinking classroom and make learning fun.
Reflections shares Australian teacher, educational consultant and author Eric Frangenheim’s favourite thinking tools with step-by-step guides to apply them to any classroom task and environment, no matter the subject, year level or student’ proficiency. Reflections also shares Eric’s classroom observations and advice for motivated educators, such as “The best learning takes place when the teacher is quiet”. Eric’s observations are taken from his 47-year teaching experience, including the past 25 years working as an educational consultant in classrooms, staff rooms and workshop settings across Australia and New Zealand.
Eric’s Thinking Skills Framework is at the heart of his work, and in this book he shares how vital this structure is for explicit teaching and for enabling students to be proactive, independent and vibrant thinkers. Eric will show you how to embrace this Thinking Skills Framework and make it the core of your lessons. This Framework will not only help you as an educator simplify your lesson planning and assessment design, but also help your students to understand the structure of thinking (from foundation to higher-order thinking) and teach them to know when, how and why to tackle a task using the appropriate thinking tools.
Enjoy creating your thinking classroom!
