This subject examines the practice of educating for thinking. The focus will be on examining the methods involved in thinking pedagogy, lessons, curricula, classrooms and thinking schools, as well as the justifications for using these methods. The methods and strategies examined will be applicable across the disciplines and in different educational contexts. There will be first-hand experience of participating in an effective thinking class that uses the practical methods examined, as well as a chance to trial these methods in students’ educational contexts. The aim is for students to gain both a theoretical understanding of the methods and strategies, as well as the practical ability to apply them. At the end of the subject, each student will develop and justify a practical method for educating thinking that is relevant for their particular educational context or interests. The topics covered may include: assessment of thinking, questioning, metacognition, thinking curriculum, thinking lessons and units, creating a thinking school, inquiry, thinking teachers and the culture or environment necessary for thinking to flourish.
