Format: Paperback
Debra McGregor has at last brought the tricky subject of thinking skills to the attention of a wide audience with this carefully written and eminently clear exposition. Drawing on a wealth of experience of the subject on both sides of the Atlantic she has skilfully crafted a work that will be of interest and use to academics, teachers and even the layman with an curiosity for how the brain works. This book references a huge number of workers in the field and as such will prove to be a good starting point for many intent on delving more into how we all learn. It will also be an essential read for academics in this area. Increasingly we need to understand the complex topic of thinking skills if we are to maximise the potential of our young people as they pass fleetingly through our education system and Debra McGregor's Developing Thinking Developing Learning will undoubtedly make a significant contribution to this understanding. Indeed I would suggest anyone intent on finding out more about this fascinating topic would be well advised to start with this book.

Very clear layout, which covers all main approaches to thinking skills in education.

Will help inform your teaching, and provide you with good reason for adopting new classroom practice; as well as help you understand what 'thinking' and 'thinking skills' are, and their importance to you, your practice and pupils.

If you're looking for something that will explain thinking skills in detail, but simply, then this is the book for you. If you're looking for a book that will convince you that thinking skills are important for education then this is the book for you. If you want a book that will guide you in changing the way you think about your teaching approach then this is the book for you.

By the end of this book you will have a renewed understanding of your role in the classroom, and what elements of a child's education are funadmental in preparing young people for the future and its complexities.

Buy it, it's helpful.

Format: Paperback
If like me you have been wrestling for some time with the many different players in this fascinating, hugely important area of study, with their differing approaches and vested interests, this is the book to buy! Trying to piece it together and make sense of it all from primary sources was proving to be mind blowing and massively time consuming until I came upon this text. Debra McGregor's book has made clear, in a very logical, readable and unbiased way, the many interwoven strands to the thinking and learning debate. Thankyou.
It has helped me crystallise my ideas for change within a large comprehensive school pyramid and helped me persuade those who need to be persuaded. It will in turn have helped me, my colleagues and students to develop.
If you are an education student, or just an interested person, you can be glad this text exists as it will open you up to crucial areas in progressive education.
