Well organized and easy-to-read, Up and Out makes the process of teaching thinking skills understandable to instructors of all experience levels. The author defines exactly what creative and critical thinking skills are, describes the theories on which they are based, and using research as well as practical activities, explains how they should be taught.

The text also covers how thinking skills can be embedded into existing reading, language arts, social studies, and science curricula. Hundreds of unique, engaging thinking activities are presented which can be used to enliven classroom instruction.

For pre-service and in-service teachers.
