Thoughtful Teachers, Thoughtful Learners by Norman J. Unrau
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The ability to think critically is the foundation of learning in all areas of the curriculum - and of life. In Thoughtful Teachers, Thoughtful Learners: Helping Students Think Critically, Norman Unrau sets out practical strategies that will help guide students towards thinking reflectively by examining claims and developing arguments. He demonstrates how thoughtful teachers in all disciplines can use listening, talking, questioning, reading and writing to encourage their students to become thoughtful learners with minds open to examining issues from a variety of perspectives, and whose decisions, both inside and outside the classroom, are guided by a search for reason.
