Editorial Reviews


"An excellent aid in teaching students to gather data systematically and process data in an organized way, developing critical thinking skills and actively engaged learners." (Mary Jo Johnson, Educational Evaluator 2006-11-13)

"Seeing 'exactly and explicitly' what students are saying by creating a mindful rendering of thinking with these graphic tools is at the heart of this extensive work. K-12 teachers will applaud this effort as they use these graphic organizers in rich and relevant instructional activities." (Robin Fogarty, Educational Consultant and Author 2006-11-13)

"These worksheets and applications cross grade levels from elementary to middle school on up. An outstanding survey highly recommended for any college-level education library or collection catering to practicing teachers." (California Bookwatch, September 2007 2007-10-12)

"The diagram are clearly done, and the overall layout of the book is very accessible. Teachers can make good use of the book for its collection of clear graphic organizer masters." (Education Libraries, Spring 2008, Vol. 30(3) 2008-05-28)

"The importance of visual aids in nurturing lifelong learning is a central theme of this book, which focuses on building skilled thinking." (Curriculum Connections, Spring 2008 2008-08-07)

About the Author

James Bellanca founded SkyLight Professional Development in 1982. As its president, he mentored more than a dozen author-consultants as he led SkyLight in pioneering the use of strategic teaching and comprehensive professional development. Prior to meta-analyses that marked the effectiveness of cooperative learning, graphic organizers, and other cognitive strategies on student achievement, Bellanca coauthored more than a dozen texts that advocated the application of these tools across the curriculum, with the theme, “not just for the test but for a lifetime of learning.” Currently, Bellanca is building on the theories of cognitive psychologist Reuven Feuerstein to develop more effective responses to the learning needs of low-performing students whose academic achievement continues to lag behind those who have greater learning advantages.
