    Based on the original Bloom's Taxonomy, this reference helps you develop lessons through six levels of critical thinking, from lowest to highest: knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. A definition of each term is provided, as well as key words and sample question formats that can be used at each level of reasoning.

    This reference, keyed to Bloom's taxonomy, helps you to "build" your lessons and discussions through the levels of critical thinking. It defines each level (knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, evaluation) and supplies typical question formats that you would use to address this level of reasoning. Use it for discussion in any subject area - including reading! The revised version contains more "teacher" jargon, but the two are very similar.

    Young children will appreciate this hands-on approach to developing analytic thinking skills via an exploration of shapes, colors, and patterns. The activities require three types of manipulatives: attribute blocks, pattern blocks, and interlocking (or multilink) cubes. Like the Building Thinking Skills program, activities cover four key areas: Similarities and Differences, Sequences, Classifications, and Analogies. Simple activity instructions appear at the top of each page as a basic guideline for the teacher. The activity book itself is approximately 250 pages. Manipulatives are not included. Required manipulatives for this program are as follows: A) Pattern Blocks – set of 100 in six colors and shapes (triangle, trapezoid, rhombus (2 types), hexagon, square); B) Interlocking Cubes – set of 100 (plastic cubes that link on all sides, 10 cubes of 10 different colors); C) Attribute Blocks – set of 60 (pieces come in 5 shapes (triangle, square, rectangle, circle, hexagon), 3 colors (red, blue, yellow), 2 sizes (large, small), 2 thicknesses). ~ Anh

    This book contains a collection of activities to help students develop their critical thinking skills. The book is divided into seven chapters focusing on different skills - judging the relevance of information; distinguishing among facts, assumptions, and values; understanding the relationship of conditions or events in stories; recognizing cause and effect relationships; rational thinking; persuasive techniques; and recognizing assumptions. Each skill is first introduced by a short example and exercise. The remainder of the chapter contains at least six different passages or stories, with questions to answer after each one. The passages are nonfiction, but interesting and appealing to kids. The questions are in a variety of formats depending upon the skill being covered, and include multiple choice, matching, long answer, and more to test comprehension and practice critical thinking. Overall, this well-designed course progresses at a good pace and appears to be both worthwhile and thought-provoking. Answer key is included. Reproducible. - Melissa

    For the high schooler, this series develops critical thinking and reading skills which focus on nine particular competencies. These nine fundamental skills were selected based on a survey of English teachers that asked them to identify the skills which are most important to student success in English. The "winners" were: recognizing and remembering key ideas; identifying the main idea; recognizing similarities; identifying sequences; the ability to cite evidence to support a position or point of view; recognizing differences between fact, probability, and opinion; the ability to judge the adequacy of information for specific purposes; selecting criteria to use for making judgments; drawing valid conclusions from the data studied. As you can see, these are not just skills to aid in reading and understanding, but abilities that will help students to succeed wherever problem-solving skills are needed. The apt title of the book was chosen because the authors "want students to be able to perceive what's important, valid, and the main idea of what they're reading, and not be misled or distracted by superfluous details or spurious arguments." Answers to the questions (which you will probably need) are included with the student book. Reproducible.

    Not just a course in logic, but also in critical reading, reasoning, and problem solving as well. This is not a course designed for independent study, but is interesting enough to enjoy working through with your students. (With 4 children in the appropriate age range, weââ‚™ve taken to using the supper table for our discussion-type lessons. It sure beats some of our less educational dinnertime chit-chat! This series is broad in scope and topics covered (see contents below). The books contain interesting real-life situations. A ââ‚Å"logicalâ₝ follow-up to Building Thinking Skills from the same publisher.

    A brand new starting point for the Building Thinking Skills series, the Beginning course is intended for children ages 3 and 4. Pages are brightly colored and uncluttered, with exercises that look fun for kids this age to do. Basic skills covered include colors, similarities and differences, geometric shapes, inference, measurement, problem solving, and analogies. At a deeper level, two pages at the beginning show which exercises relate to physiological development and cognitive skills such as visual tracking, auditory processing, and fine motor skills development, among others. If you were to find an area that needs attention, you could focus on the exercises on these page numbers. No manipulatives are required with this book; however, some of the exercises show geometric shapes that look like attribute blocks. It would be easier and more fun for the student to have these available during the lesson, and if you go on to Building Thinking Skills Primary, you will need them anyway. sc, 218 pgs.
