Editorial Reviews

The editors have written for this work a three page preface and introductions to the four sections--education, research, issues in clinical practice, and issues in professional practice. The balance of the book is a collection of papers previously published in the journal Cancer nursing in the years from 1978 to 1990. Sponsored by the Maryland Center for Thinking Studies and the International Association for the Study of Cooperation in Education, this collection of essays offers a theoretical foundation on current practice in cooperative thinking, as well as numerous practical methods that can be applied to a full range of classroom settings, from kindergarten to graduate school and across a variety of subjects.

    Excellent Resource!

    This book gives both theory and practical applications for using cooperative learning in the classroom to help your students become better thinkers and problem solvers (better life-long learners). If you believe that teaching your students how to think and learn is just as important (if not more) than the subject matter for your course, this is the book for you. I especially like Chapter 11 by Frank T. Lyman and his Thinktrix. Thinktrix really breaks down the different thinking processes that students can use to help themselves study more effectively. It also helps teachers to write better test questions at various thinking levels.
