'The book provides a roadmap for teachers who want to provide their students with the knowledge and skills they will need to thrive in the 21st century.' - Allan Collins, Professor Emeritus of Learning Sciences, Northwestern University, US.

'There has been so much research about deeper learning, communicative competence, and critical thinking but so little evidence or guidance about optimal teaching of these outcomes. This book fills this gap with its rich ideas, evidence, and implementation strategies, written by the "who's who" in the field. It is wonderful to see that the book recognises these topics as closely related, able to feed off each other, and can be taught within any domain.' - John Hattie, Laureate Professor, Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne, Australia

'This book is a valuable resource for teacher educators. Packed with a wide range of approaches to teaching aspects of thinking, each chapter seeks to make visible the practical, and sometimes implicit, steps between intention and the desired result.' - Rosemary Hipkins, Chief Researcher, New Zealand Council for Educational Research
