Teaching students to "think" has never been easy, but Dr. Folsom's book provides teachers with an excellent template to introduce thinking and learning processes to students.
Influenced by Dr. Folsom and the teachers participating in her research, I've re-designed many of my lessons and class activities to provide students with an opportunity to develop their ability to use the thinking operations and character qualities presented in the TIEL model.
The results of a recent class project exceeded my expectations. The student's self-evaluations collected at the conclusion of the project demonstrated insightful learning and student pride and ownership of their work.
I would recommend this book to any educator searching for the ways and means to teach students self-management skills, to communicate and work co-operatively with others, and to improve their ability to evaluate and revise their work.
