Sparking Student Synapses, Grades 9-12 Think Critically and Accelerate Learning

by Richard Allen, Nigel Scozzi

Sparking Student Synapses, Grades 9-12 Think Critically and Accelerate Learning Synopsis

The Obama AdministrationAEs Strategy for American Innovation is committed to oeducate the next generation with 21st-century knowledge and skills while creating a world-class workforce.oe Practical strategies for teaching critical thinking and innovation will be an increasingly important and relevant topic in AmericaAEs high schools for years to come. This shift in required education outcomes has created a gap in many classrooms. Although the curriculum has changed dramatically, many high school educators are still relying on strategies developed to teach rote learning. Learning the core content is merely the starting point. We need students to understand and recall this content quickly, so they can then begin higher order thinking.Based on Rich Allen's Green Light strategies, this book is a compendium of one master teacher's proven processes and strategies, with commentary based on his actual experience of implementing them himself and introducing them to his department. Backed by the research, this provides secondary teachers with a practical guide to developing dynamic lessons that support the development of critical thinking, offering them a tried and trusted process; a plethora of new ideas; sample lessons across the curriculum; and tips for implementation.

Sparking Student Synapses, Grades 9-12 Think Critically and Accelerate Learning Press Reviews

What I love about this book is that the fundamental idea is that critical thinking is essential, and you need to have something in your head about which to think critically. It then clearly and step-by-step explains how teachers can do this. If I were to give a gift basket of the top five books every educator should have, I would include this one. -- Lisa Van Gemert, M.Ed.T.
