Responsibility, compassion, and self-direction are the kind of balanced, common sense characteristics that both teachers and students should develop. Yet, in an environment of high stakes testing, common sense and educational balance are often lost amidst constant test preparation. Teaching for Intellectual and Emotional Learning (TIEL): A Model for Creating Powerful Curriculum will help teachers and teacher educators meet their goals of mastery in basic skills and content knowledge as well as intellectual and social emotional development. Sharing the experiences of real teachers who changed their teaching and helped their students understand their learning and develop skills of self-direction and collaboration, Folsom introduces a powerful visual model that helps teachers develop standards-based curriculum that includes social-emotional learning. New ways of planning lessons and developing project-based units that focus on developing thinking skills and social emotional learning are presented. The TIEL model makes the fundamental intellectual and social emotional processes that underlie effective teaching and learning accessible to teacher educators, teachers, and students in gifted, special, and general education.

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.
