Navigate the opportunities and challenges of current reform initiatives by focusing on three important shifts: reorienting to a thinking classroom; attending to enriched goals; and aligning practices with key principles of 21st century learning.

Education is becoming ever more complex. Here is a book that takes this complexity and, while not oversimplifying the demands, provides a coherent approach to responding to these demands, and in an inspiring way.
—Kandace Jordan, Deputy Superintendent, Golden Hills School Division, Alberta

Educational reform is indeed daunting. As teachers and leaders strive to create more powerful learning for students, they will find many ideas and tools in this book to encourage and support their challenging work.
—Carol Rolheiser, Professor, Department of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning (OISE), University of Toronto

Creating thinking classrooms identifies the key contradictions and paradoxes and offers clear directions and a comprehensive road map to bring about meaningful change in schools to meet the demands of the 21st century 'renovation.' Gini-Newman and Case offer a coherent response to the demands facing teachers and administrators and provide sound and timely advice, in a cogent and persuasive manner.
—Dr. Avis Glaze, Edu-quest International Inc., Former Chief Student Achievement Officer of Ontario
