“When schools need to equip students with the skills to facilitate creativity, here is the blueprint. This carefully crafted advice has been road-tested and it works.”
—Neil MacNeill, Principal
Ellenbrook Independent Primary School, Ellenbrook, WA
"If you are looking for a book that makes the links between standards, technology use, and readily implementable classroom lessons and makes a difference for students, then consider yourself to have one in your hand. In addition, the connections made to diversified professional development and administrative practices are laid out in a way that makes it easy to put them in to practice tomorrow."
"This book provides cutting-edge professional learning in the teaching of higher level learning skills. When schools, systems, states and nations (e.g. Singapore) need to equip students with the skills that will facilitate creativity here is the blueprint. The carefully crafted advice has been road tested and it works. I am waiting impatiently for the book to become available because it can help to improve every student’s learning, and therefore it should be essential reading for every preservice teacher and educational paraprofessional during their training."
"Rather than keeping the discussion at the theoretical level, Moersch provides concrete scenarios and the success and challenges. The need for administrative support and leadership is detailed, as are walkthrough examples and implementation recommendations. This text is scholarly, but accessible, and includes a balance of real-life examples and strategies."
