'This is a blockbuster of a book. It allows teachers to follow standards, but provides space for them to develop students' wisdom, intelligence, and creativity (and of course success). Both teachers and students will come to understand themselves and their values better' - William E. Doll, Jr., Professor Emeritus, Louisiana State University. The essential guide for teaching beyond the test! Students with strong higher-order thinking skills are more likely to become successful, lifelong learners. Based on extensive, collaborative research by leading authorities in the field, this book shows how to implement teaching and learning strategies that nurture intelligence, creativity, and wisdom.This practical teaching manual offers an overview of the WICS model - Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, Synthesized - which helps teachers foster students' capacities for effective learning and problem solving.
