The Big Book of Independent Thinking




It’s a big book. About thinking independently.

In this, the very first book published in the Independent Thinking collection, a disparate group of educational mavericks covers a whole range of topics with the aim of enriching young people’s lives by changing the way they think. Each chapter – covering areas including neuroscience, discipline in the classroom, emotional intelligence, ICT, motivation, using music for learning and creativity – comes with a fascinating foreword by Ian himself. It is the definitive guide for anyone wishing to understand and use some of the thinking that makes Independent Thinking a unique and successful organisation. This will get you thinking for yourself, thinking about what you do, why you do what you do and whether doing it that way is the best thing at all.
