"Art Costa has done more than anyone I can think of to advance the practical cause of more thoughtful education."
“To read the myriad ideas in this robust collection, the reader is soon privy to a noble and notable vision of schooling in which mindfulness permeates the metaphorical walls of the school and all of its structural components: the curriculum, the instruction, and the reflective practices of those immersed in the vision.”
"What is the next best thing to having the opportunity to be in one of Art Costa's presentations? It is clearly the opportunity to read and reread his work. He has a knack for making the theoretical understandable and the practical 'practice-able.'"
"Presents fascinating and vital information that lays a strong foundation for the teaching of thinking, something that is badly needed today. It will have a broad appear in both the education and business worlds. I'm amazed at how much I've learned from reading it!"
Useful subject matter for trainees and early childhood
Useful resource very pertinent.
This book has had such a profound impact on my approach to designing my course ware. I have recommended it to my colleagues as well as to the staff at the Department for curriculum Design and Development.
Useful, but specific to curriculum areas. Interesting approach to links between interrelations between home, school and individuals.
