Overview

Learn to Think: Basic Exercises in the Core Thinking Skills for Ages 6-11 by John Langrehr

Classroom questions have traditionally focussed on testing the recall, understanding and application of content and methods. Research suggests that pupils require activities that encourage them to think flexibly about possibilities and to make independent judgements about information.

Learn to Think takes a cross-curriculum approach and offers a wide range of exercises in all significant thinking skills areas:

  • Organisational
  • Analytical
  • Evaluative
  • Creative

Predicting, categorisation, ordering, generalising, problem solving, summarising, analysis, making distinctions, decision making, cause and evidence are among the skills developed. This book introduces the basic core thinking processes used to connect and make sense of information through a range of skill based sections which provide the basis of a thinking skills programme for pupils. It is complete with introductory notes and examples, pupil work sheets, suggested answers and further useful questions. The resources are fully photocopiable and are suitable for 6 -11 year olds.
