TLRP: Building thinking skills in thinking classrooms. ACTS (Activating Children's Thinking Skills) in Northern Ireland, Research Briefing 18
In this project, frameworks and classroom strategies were developed with teachers to enhance children’s thinking skills across the curriculum. The teaching approach used was called ‘infusion’. It involves a curriculum topic and a specific pattern of thinking being taught together. The methods were evaluated in a three-year intervention study with Key Stage 2 pupils in Northern Ireland schools. A particular focus was on the development and analysis of classroom talk that helped children ‘to think about their thinking’.
