This step-by-step introduction to teaching thinking skills will be useful to teachers, librarians, and staff development personnel. Each thinking skill is presented in a one-page reproducible format (easily adapted to a transparency or PowerPoint slide), followed by several self-contained activities teaching that skill using fairy tales and fantasy books as the basis. Over 30 skills are included, ranging from deductive reasoning to inferential and perceptual thinking. An ideal resource for gifted education teachers, this is the first book in this format to provide such a breadth of coverage.
