Thinking Skills Coursebook Summary

Thinking Skills Coursebook by Mark Dawes

This series helps students and teachers following the Cambridge AS & A Level Thinking Skills syllabus (9694) for examination from 2020. Universities and employers have high expectations for 21st century learners. They want students who can think critically, collaborate efficiently and produce creative solutions to problems. With more practice questions than the previous edition, this coursebook provides opportunities for students to improve both their critical thinking and problem solving skills. It walks students through different scenarios - such as drawing conclusions from arguments - explaining the thinking process involved and helping to increase confidence when thinking independently. Suggested answers to the coursebook questions are in the teacher's resource.
