The Routledge International Handbook of Research on Teaching Thinking

Part of the Routledge International Handbooks of Education Series

The Routledge International Handbook of Research on Teaching Thinking Synopsis

The Routledge International Handbook of Research on Teaching Thinking is a comprehensive guide to research on teaching thinking. Teaching thinking is key to growing a more successful economy, is needed for increased democratic engagement and is vital for the well-being of individuals faced with the complexity of a globalised world. However, there are questions about what we mean by 'thinking', how best to teach it and how best to assess it, and it is these questions that this handbook explores and addresses. Containing surveys and summaries of international, cutting-edge research on every aspect of teaching thinking in a range of contexts, the handbook is thorough in its delivery, examining many different approaches and methods to help readers understand what teaching thinking is and how we can best take this movement forward. Key topics include: * Theoretical perspectives on teaching thinking * Approaches for teaching thinking * Developing creative thinking * Developing critical thinking and metacognition * The assessment of thinking * Teaching thinking in the context of STEM * Collaborative thinking and new technology * Neuro-educational research on teaching thinking This book is an essential guide for policy-makers, teachers and researchers who are interested in teaching thinking
