Teaching Critical Thinking to Teach Writing

Teaching Critical Thinking to Teach Writing | Common Core Online | Scoop.it

"writing may help students develop their critical-thinking skills, but writing does not necessarily teach critical thinking"


 "The best way to help students learn critical thinking may be to actually teach it."

Mel Riddile's curator insight, April 16, 8:23 AM
  1. Writing improves writing.
  2. Students will not write better than they think. 
  3. Students will not write complete thoughts unless they think complete thoughts.
  4. Students will not learn to think by listening to teachers talk.
  5. "The brain that does the work does the learning." 
Ula Rutter's curator insight, April 17, 1:37 AM

A lot of thinking needs to happen before a written text emerges...the text then reflects the quality of thinking.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, April 16, 2:09 PM
My message: yes! Everyone should be supporting speaking & listening. Our culture has a slowly dying sense of civility. Improved communication practices would go far to turn this slow death around. Unfortunately, though I love technology, it does little to advance meaningful face-to-face discourse. Modeling responsible dialogue and providing opportunities for constructive discussion, debate, and consensus-making is an imperative placed upon teachers, parents, business, and yes, government.
