CAMP BONNIE, and MARY ANN S. BASH. Think Aloud: Increasing Social and Cognitive Skills--A Problem-Solving Program for Children, Primary Level. (Illus.) Champaign, IL: Research Press, 1981 (reprinted in 1990). 296pp. $49.95. 81-51871. ISBN 0-87822-254-5.EP, EI

This loose-leaf, sturdy, bound manual with a neat and simple design contains a complete program of 23 problem-solving lessons developed to provide a systematic approach to problem-solving strategies. It is designed specifically for classroom use, especially for special education or resource rooms, and consequently, educational terminology is employed. It has been proven to be useful in settings outside of the classroom. The program is designed for children with behavioral or other special needs who range in functional age from six to eight years old. It is strongly recommended that groups do not exceed four in number. The program is directed to "real-life" social situations and is structured in such a way as to provoke behavior and reactions that commonly occur in day-to-day situations. The structure of the program promotes a proactive problem-solving approach, encouraging children to use language and develop deductive reasoning skills. The research compiled specifically on the Think Aloud Program would be more beneficial to the prospective facilitator if placed in section I, after chapter 2. The program is well organized, consistent, and clear in its approach and intent. It would benefit the child in need of intervention, as well as assist the teacher working with such children.-- Marilyn Fraktman, Lesley College, Cambridge, MA

This is one of those occasional, particularly practical books that is very readable yet filled with sufficient details to accomplish its instructional goals. The organization is clearly designed to teach social action problem-solving techniques
