Rupert Wegerif and Li Li, "The Routledge International Handbook of Research on Teaching Thinking"
English | ISBN: 041574749X | 2015 | 512 pages | PDF | 3 MB

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 paramount 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 access it, and it is these questions that the 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 and 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
