Yvonne Marie Webber's curator insight, July 25, 2013 8:22 PM

"So what can we do increase the use of research by practitioners? Through efforts like the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE), which brings together funders, researchers, and practitioners for the purpose of improving Jewish education, we are working to put structures in place to support researchers and help bridge the gap between their world and that of the practitioners."

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

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus | Jewish Education Around the World | 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).

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 30, 2013 2:24 PM

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.
