How to Teach Thinking Skills Within the Common Core: 7 Key Student Proficiencies of the New National Standards
About How to Teach Thinking Skills Within the Common Core: 7 Key Student Proficiencies of the New National StandardsThe Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are designed to make K 12 students college and career ready in mathematics, language arts, history and social studies, science, and technical subjects. The goal has been set. The challenge now lies in how teachers will address these standards in the classroom. How to Teach Thinking Skills Within the Common Core is a practical guide that prepares teachers to teach to the CCSS, across all grade levels and content areas. Authors James A. Bellanca, Robin J. Fogarty, and Brian M. Pete divide the book into seven key student proficiencies that encompass the desired thinking skills of the CCSS: (1) critical thinking, (2) creative thinking, (3) complex thinking, (4) comprehensive thinking, (5) collaborative thinking, (6) communicative thinking, and (7) cognitive transfer. Each proficiency focuses on three specific thinking skills prominent in the Common Core. The twenty-one applicable skills make the Common Core approachable for all teachers and students.
Additionally, the authors provide a three-phase model for teaching each thinking skill. In phase I, the Talk-Through, educators teach the thinking skill explicitly. In phase II, the Walk-Through, teachers practice the thinking skill within content-based lessons, providing guidance to ensure the proper application of the skill. In phase III, the thinking skill is transferred to authentic applications using CCSS performance tasks, allowing educators to make a direct connection between the selected thinking skill and the new standards.
With How to Teaching Thinking Skills Within the Common Core, teachers and educational leaders will learn how to make simple adjustments to classroom instruction to enhance students' critical-thinking skills and prepare them for college and the workforce.
