Designing a Thinking Curriculum responds to the challenge of disengagement in the middle years of schooling by providing teachers and administrators with ideas for the implementation of a thinking curriculum in their schools. Teachers, teacher educators and curriculum consultants describe how they have been influenced by theorists, their use of appropriate cognitive theories, and strategies they have developed that will assist students to develop higher order thinking skills. Ways of accommodating a variety of learning styles and establishing supportive school structures are also presented.
