 Publisher's Summary
 'This book seamlessly blends theory with practical, reallife applications and activities that can be completed quickly and easily in both school and home settings. This encourages a partnership between all stakeholders to help students succeed'  Betty Brandenburg Yundt, SixthGrade Teacher, Curriculum Coordinator, Walker Intermediate School, Fort Knox, KY. 'Using realworld examples and applications, this book makes cognitive psychology and cognitive education accessible to all who work with children and other learners. I immediately felt more confident in applying my new thinking and understanding to my practice'  Wendy Holley, School Psychologist, BendLa Pine School District, OR. Based on Instrumental Enrichment (IE), a cognitive education approach pioneered by internationally renowned psychologist and child development expert Reuven Feuerstein, this updated volume provides practitioners with muchneeded techniques to develop students' thinking skills and 'bridge' these skills to the home and community. This userfriendly book outlines fourteen core thinking skills that increase students' cognitive capacity, including organization, comparison, categorization, and problem solving. The authors demonstrate how teachers can mediate learning in the classroom and help parents, social workers, counsellors, and other adults who work with youth to extend learning beyond the classroom. Each chapter features: an introduction to and description of a specific skill; examples and applications for formal and informal learning contexts; an outline of how the skill aligns with Feuerstein's theories of Mediated Learning and Cognitive Modifiability. Expanded to include an overview of many IErelated research studies and quotes to stimulate reflection on each skill, this second edition of "Bridging Learning" is a dynamic resource for creative educators dedicated to enhancing thinking skills in all learners.
