Develop lifelong learners by promoting effective thinking skills in school and beyond!

Based on Instrumental Enrichment (IE), a cognitive education approach pioneered by internationally renowned psychologist and child development expert Reuven Feuerstein, this updated volume provides practitioners with much-needed techniques to develop students′ thinking skills and "bridge" these skills to the home and community.

This user-friendly book outlines fourteen core thinking skills that increase students′ cognitive capacity, including organization, comparison, categorization, and problem solving. The authors demonstrate how teachers can mediate learning in the classroom and help parents, social workers, counselors, and other adults who work with youth to extend learning beyond the classroom. Each chapter features:

  • An introduction to and description of a specific skill
  • Examples and applications for formal and informal learning contexts
  • An outline of how the skill aligns with Feuerstein′s theories of Mediated Learning and Cognitive Modifiability

Expanded to include an overview of many IE-related research studies and quotes to stimulate reflection on each skill, this second edition of Bridging Learning is a dynamic resource for creative educators dedicated to enhancing thinking skills in all learners.
