Promise and Possibilities book
Education designed to develop thinking has become exciting and challenging for many practitioners and others concerned with schooling. The historical reasons for this turn of events will be explored a little later, but one certainly must honor the boldness of those who feel drawn to this mission. After all, of the many hu man activities that we value-athletic, artistic, diplomatic, eco nomic, and so on-good thinking viewed as a general skill seems one of the vaguest and least amenable to schooling. Yet the prospects for education designed to improve students’ thinking are very real and worth careful consideration by any educator who feels drawn to the promise and possibilities of this mission.
