Summary

This book articulates a theory of learning based on learning research and translates that theory into a model of classroom instruction. This model is based on the assumption that the process of learning involves the interaction of five types, or dimensions of thinking, which are loose metaphors for the way the mind works during learning. These dimensions are: (1) developing positive attitudes and perceptions about learning; (2) acquiring and integrating knowledge; (3) extending and refining knowledge; (4) using knowledge meaningfully; and (5) developing productive habits of mind. The first six of the book's seven chapters describe ways for classroom teachers to foster these dimensions of learning in their students; offer suggestions for planning instruction that addresses each dimension of learning; and discuss topics with practical relevance to each dimension of learning. The final chapter proposes three models for integrating the five dimensions in classroom instruction and discusses the assessment of instructional methods that are based on the dimensions of learning. A reference list of approximately 230 items is provided. (BC)
