"Teachers are often told to improve students' problem-solving abilities, but this is a book that explains HOW a teacher can go about that task. The authors teach the practitioner how to recognize dysfunctions in cognition, and provide strategies for helping students become independent learners."
"A practical primer par excellence for teachers who want to implement the principles of Reuven Feuerstein's Mediated Learning Experience. A multitude of easy-to-implement suggestions for the use of Mediated Learning empowers teachers to transform even the most challenged students into more effective thinkers and learners."
"Offers a host of important intervention techniques to increase student motivation and improve problem-solving skills, and is a recommended pick for any college-level teaching or education collection. The inclusion of worksheets makes for a practical resource, offering reproducible fill-in checkpoints for success."
