This infographic provides a look at how we may develop 21st century critical thinkers. Using an image of a brain with eight areas that look at skills we need to know how to use,and that correspond with 21st century skills found in the Common Core and the Partnership for 21st Century Skills.

In addition there are six that we as teachers should be doing within our classrooms including:

* Integrate critical thinking skills within and across all content areas

* Establish safe, intellectually risk-free learning environments

* Allow time to develop critical thinking skills.

There is also a section called "Your Students' Path to Critical Thinking" that includes 25 recommendations.
