ThinkTrix
Tools to Teach 7 Essential Thinking Skills
Dr. Frank T. Lyman, Jr. (All Grades)
ThinkTrix empowers your students to be better thinkers and broader thinkers. ThinkTrix develops better thinkers through metacognition—thinking about their own thinking. Students learn exactly what their minds need to do for the seven core types of thinking. They are better prepared to respond correctly to test questions, write clearly, and to be more effective students in general. While metacognition may sound complicated, this book makes the process super simple for you and your students. More concise thinking is sufficient rationale for using ThinkTrix with your students. But there's another big benefit—ThinkTrix allows you and your students to think more deeply about any topic. You and your students will apply the seven types of thinking to a variety of curricula, and expand everyone's knowledge, comprehension, and creativity about the subject matter. ThinkTrix—better, broader, deeper thinking! 216 pages. BLTT • $29
