Getting Smarter At Solving Problems: Teacher’s Manual
Moursund, David G.
Getting Smarter at Solving Problems is specifically designed to be used as a supplementary text in a junior high school or secondary school computer literacy course. This Teacher's Manual is specifically designed to help teachers of such computer literacy courses make appropriate use of the instructional materials. Although this manual is designed for computer literacy teachers, it likely that many other teachers will make use of the text and the Teacher's Manual. Getting Smarter at Problem Solving can be used in a wide variety of learning settings. For example, the text might be used in a course on problem solving or as supplementary material in a social studies course. Also, the text has been used extensively in graduate courses for teachers. This Teacher's Manual is aimed at two distinct audiences. One audience is inservice teachers who face the day to day challenge of helping a wide range of students to become more computer literate. The other audience is educators, both inservice and preservice, who want to know more about how we can help students to become better prepared for life in an Information Age Society which is placing more and more demands on people's ability to solve problems.
