isual guide to critical thinking. print or post to share with students

 

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.  

Jackie Gil's curator insight, May 14, 2014 12:43 PM

Con tanta información a nuestro alrededor es fundamental que aprendamos a cuestionar nuestros hallazgos y nuestras propias ideas.
