I'm thinking about ordering this book online at amazon. The author provides teachers with strategies and techniques to enhance participation in the classroom. The goal is to have students more engaged and active during oral discussions or collaborative groups. Students who can express his/her ideas, voice their opinions, or change their thinking due to learning new pertinent information -will more likely increase their higher order thinking skills. The primary goal is to cognitively engage students and keep them thinking out side the box. I think this book might be a great purchase to add to my teacher toolbox.
