Why are Thinking Maps Effective?
In the area of cognitive science, Dr. David Hyerle has synthesized the research on cognitive skills development by identifying eight fundamental thinking skills and describing how these skills work in unison (Hyerle, 1992). These eight cognitive skills are used together by students for life long learning across disciplines and with greater complexity as students move through each grade level. By clearly defining these cognitive skills, students quickly become aware of the thinking skills that drive their learning, giving them explicit pathways for thinking about their thinking and improving their performance.
