Genre: Education

An analogy is a comparison that points out the similarities between things that are different in all other respects. Teaching students how to solve analogies not only develops their logical thinking, but also builds visual awareness and verbal proficiency. The seven different types of visual analogies and 14 different verbal analogies in Analogies for Beginners are perfect for beginning lessons in logical reasoning, flexible thinking, and vocabulary. Each page gives students an example of the type of analogy that is being introduced and then provides 7 (visual) or 10 (verbal) problems for them to solve. This combination of verbal and visual formats is an ideal way to introduce logical thinking in primary grades. Whether you have time for one analogy a day, or a worksheet a week, students will benefit in many ways when analogies are part of your curriculum. The use of visual analogies is beneficial for developing visual analysis even for older students, but especially useful for nonreaders and students with developing English skills. The verbal analogies provide students with exercises that require them to use word comprehension and also to examine various characteristics, uses, and relationships.

Release Date: 1990-01
Genre: Education

Too often, thinking skills have been overlooked or considered extra, something above and beyond the basic that must be taught. Teachers need to recognize that thinking skills are basic and critical thinking activities should be considered indispensable to the education of every child. These books present activities to help students develop their thinking and problem-solving skills using strategies that can help solve non-routine math problems. Students will use more than one strategy to arrive at a solution, and some of these strategies require that students use skills such as thinking visually, recognizing patterns, using logical reasoning, and doing organized counting--all of which are elements of critical thinking in mathematics. Critical Thinking Activities can be used as a supplement to an existing math curriculum to introduce, reinforce, and elaborate on specific critical thinking skills. The pages are designed to be reproduced for students to use as individual worksheets or problem cards. To view sample lessons and pages, click on the appropriate ISBN # below.
