A lovely review of'Teaching Creative Thinking' received

22 January 2018

Teaching Creative Thinking: Developing Learners Who Generate Ideas And Can Think Critically™ by Bill Lucas (Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning) and Ellen Spencer (Senior Researcher at the Centre for Real-World Learning) is an action-oriented and research-led instructional study that is packed from cover to cover with examples and case studies of successful practice, and pitfalls to avoid. ˜Teaching Creative Thinking™ deftly explores the ways in which teachers can help learners to cultivate the dispositions which evidence suggests are going to be valuable to them both at school and in later life. Creative thinking is original, purposeful and valuable. In many ways, creative thinking is a social activity and it usually takes place in response to an issue or problem facing an individual or group. Successful students value knowledge and skills at the same time as understanding the importance of developing their capabilities as learners in every lesson they experience. Exceptionally well written and thoroughly ˜user friendly™ in organization and presentation, ˜Teaching Creative Thinking™ is unreservedly recommended for professional, school district, college and university library Teacher Education reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists. It should be noted for education students, classroom teachers, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that œTeaching Creative Thinking is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $15.99).
