    pragmatic, concise, pratical

    Far too many books on this subject have made this topic overwhelmingly complex. Johnson's description of thinking skills makes it very easy to understand and implement. This book contains hundreds of activities that can be used in reading, language arts, social studies, science, and gifted education. It is a must for any general education or gifted education teacher in grades K-12.
