How to Teach Thinking Skills Within the Common Core is a practical guide that prepares K-12 teachers across content areas to teach students the following seven key cognitive skills identified in the Common Core State Standards: critical thinking, creative thinking, complex thinking, comprehensive thinking, collaborative thinking, communicative thinking, and cognitive transfer.

Authors James A. Bellanca, Robin J. Fogarty, and Brian M. Pete present an easy-to-follow, three-phase model of explicit teaching, guided practice in content-based lessons, and authentic application in standards-based performance tasks that will strengthen students' ability to learn across the curriculum.

Teachers will be guided step-by-step through the following phases:

  • Phase I, Talk-Through: Teachers explicitly teach students a critical thinking skill.
  • Phase II, Walk-Through: Utilize the provided content-based lessons. Providing specific guidance to ensure proper application of the skill.
  • Phase III: Link selected thinking stills and new standards with CCSS performance tasks.

Online and print resources, a glossary, reproducibles, reflection questions, and more make this a complete resource for teachers implementing the Common Core.
