These critical thinking activities are rich in language opportunities. Those listed at the end of the article will look familiar to many teachers who teach content information through English.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

"A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:


raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems."

Kathy Schrock knows thinking and technology ....right on, as always!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 13, 3:08 AM

Kathy Schrock has been looking ahead with technology and a librarian's instinct for organization for years. She's still hitting it out of the park.

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
One of the most effective ways to provoke student thought is through the building of “rich” questions. By asking meaningful questions - and interacting with textual information – students can come to an understanding that builds upon on their own personal experiences and opinions. Through the use of a template, questions can be created in any way that you want and provide you with a specific platform to begin your questioning focus.

Important from the very beginning to create critical thinking

Audrey's curator insight, April 13, 2014 4:21 AM

The questions can be based on exam questions, or directly from past exam questions.  The students can be asked about their own experiences and say whether the textual information has any application to the society in which they live, e.g. How does the information help us?

Feedback is the DNA of development. Learn how to ask for it and take it.  Oh...and the more you give, the more you get!

Embrace criticism!

Philip Powel Smith's curator insight, July 29, 2014 8:04 AM

Criticism is always a difficult pro-active action that educators have to give. Criticism without ridicule and shame is what students need to hear and an explanation of how to make the changes to be better learners and communicators.

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Critical thinking is defined as a reflective and reasonable thought process embodying depth, accuracy, and astute judgment to determine the merit of a decision, an object, or a theory (Alwehaibi, 2012). Creative thinking involves analysis, evaluation, and a synthesizing of facts, ideas, opinions, and theories. Possessing the capacity to logically and creatively exercise in-depth judgment and reflection to work effectively in the realm of complex ideas exemplifies a critical thinker (Carmichael & Farrell, 2012).

I had a banner on my classroom wall for years. It read: "Learn how to think!"


In the conservative backwaters of Nevada this was considered a radical approach.  I even had a parent rant at me, "How dare you teach my child to challenge authority!"  


Still I persisted and can now smile knowing I've helped some of my students on the road to critical thinking.   


Is critical thinking a subversive activity in your school?  If so, be subversive! 

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, July 31, 2013 9:31 AM

Good reading for anyone who works with students.
