How do we teach students to be critical thinkers? How do we train teachers to teach critical thinking? Edutopia has recently published a number of articles focused on 'Critical Thinking: A Path to College and Career.'

This link takes you directly to a page where a "Katie Kirkpatrick, dean of instruction at KIPP King Collegiate High School" shares her experience with a training she designed for teachers. From this page you may link to many other areas. Two that you may find helpful are:

* Ten Takeaway Tips for Teaching Critical Thinking

* Resources and Downloads for Teaching Critical Thinking

The Resources and Download area includes lesson plans and rubrics as well as Tools for Critical Thinking.
