Spotlight on Reasoning and Problem Solving

by Paul F. Johnson / Carolyn LoGiudice

Students become purposeful, active thinkers as they focus on one thinking strategy at a time. Each book targets a specific reasoning and problem solving skill and develops metacognitive thinking with:

  • activities sequenced by complexity
  • visual cues that are gradually faded
  • skills defined in student-friendly terms
  • a variety of curricular and daily living topics
  • simple sentence structure and vocabulary so students can focus on learning the concepts
  • minimal writing requirements at the beginning levels
  • a pretest/posttest

    The books may be purchased individually or as a 6-book set. The 6-book set consists of:
