What the experts are saying:

‘This innovative book applies the idea of growth mindset to the cultivation of a vital contemporary capability - creative thinking - drawing on both evidence and promising practices.’
Carol Dweck, Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

‘The thinking classroom is most likely to develop the thinking student - Bill Lucas shows how this is possible, now! Developing creative thinking requires deliberate planning and expertise. This book, richly embedded in the science of learning, shows the how.’
John Hattie, Professor of Education, Melbourne University

‘A text for our time - taking us beyond current parochial notions of schooling, and demonstrating powerfully, with evidence, the centrality of creative thinking to the achievement of all students.’
Geoff Barton, General Secretary, Association of School and College Leaders
