- We can order this from the publisher
Thinking about the Teaching of Thinking provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to Feuerstein's theory of Mediated Learning Experience and its related tools and programmes. It details up-to-date international and New Zealand research on the Feuerstein approach which reflects the current issues in the teaching of thinking.
The book begins by defining what is meant by the teaching of thinking and provides an easy to understand explanation of the Feuerstein method and its value for children with learning challenges. It champions a 'whole school' approach to the teaching of thinking and details the practical tools and programmes developed by Feuerstein - such as Instrumental Enrichment and the Learning Propensity Assessment Device - to aid in its implementation. It also recognises the key importance of cultural factors in the teaching of thinking, bringing together the author's considerable research experience using the Feuerstein method in the multicultural New Zealand context with her extensive knowledge of international Feuerstein research.
This book provides a user-friendly and unique coverage of the Feuerstein method for researchers and postgraduate students researching and working in educational psychology. It will also be of great value for teachers and parents looking to understand and decide on implementation of the Feuerstein approach in their schools.

"Howie has again produced an admirable work on cognitive education, with a specific focus on the theory and application of the Instrumental Enrichment program (Feuerstein, 2006). She includes laudable examples to tie the program and its effects to New Zealand and the Maori population, but the work extends world-wide also. This volume adds importantly to the corpus of work on cognitive education in general and to Instrumental Enrichment in particular." David S. Martin, Professor/Dean Emeritus, Gallaudet University
