THE COGNITIVE SIX
The Cognitive Six is a teaching tool that excites learning. It is a book that can be used immediately to create content-based lessons that use and teach the six ways our brains naturally think.
Since the vast amount of language used daily in our world–in print, talk, and media– is generally lacking in critical analysis and problem solving, we believe it is imperative that thinking skills become part of general education and daily life. Both the Common Core Standards and the 21st Century Education Goals support this claim.
Although, The Cognitive Six is recommended for grades 3rd to 8th, it can be used by all. The Cognitive Six enables all users to meet the challenges that require thinking and problem solving in their lives. This is accomplished without disrupting the demands of daily activities.

STRUCTURE ANALYSIS/BREAKING DOWN AND BUILDING UP
(Does it have parts? Is it part of something else?)
