Ten Takeaway Tips for Teaching Critical Thinking

Ten Takeaway Tips for Teaching Critical Thinking | Education Leadership | Scoop.it
Ideally, teaching kids how to think critically becomes an integral part of your approach, no matter what subject you teach.


Here are 10 concrete ways you can begin leveraging your students' critical-thinking skills in the classroom and beyond.

1. Questions, questions, questions.
Questioning is at the heart of critical thinking, so you want to create an environment where intellectual curiosity is fostered and questions are encouraged. For Jared Kushida, who teaches a global politics class called War and Peace at KIPP King Collegiate, "lecturing" means integrating a flow of questions throughout a lesson. "I rarely go on for more than 30 seconds without asking a question, and I rarely stop at that one question," he explains.

How do students feel about rigor and challenging work?

How do students feel about rigor and challenging work? | Education Leadership | Scoop.it

Rigor is NOT a Four-Letter Word:

By Barbara Blackburn


Too often, we promote rigor as work that is only for advanced students, or work that is more (doubling the amount of homework) or harder (you already can’t do it, so here’s something that is even harder). That is NOT rigor.
