Our schools teach every subject explicitly, i.e. rote learning of basic principles and concepts. What most schools DO NOT teach explicitly are thinking skills. And thinking is a skill like any other; it can be learned, practiced, and improved. But, if the steps and sequences, and processes of thinking aren’t covered in schools, where do our children and students learn them? The fact is that they don’t; they learn them implicitly through life. That’s slow, imperfect, and it leads to too many costly mistakes needlessly. We can, and should, do better. We should teach thinking skills.
