Carol Dweck researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain's capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.

Critical Thinking Questions Students Should Be Able to Ask

Critical Thinking Questions Students Should Be Able to Ask | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

As I argued in an earlier post titled ”Critical Thinking Questions Based on Bloom's Taxonomy”, questioning is the key to critical thinking and through questions students  get to explore the deep layers of meanings that would otherwise go unnoticed. Of course not all questions have this analytical ability. For instance, closed questions tend to limit the thinking choices available for students. The same with questions that promote factual recalling. Questions that emphasize the mechanical on the analytical are out of the list.

Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

Point 2, they cannot read as fast as their peers, is also part of the diagnostic process. Does it make sense that the ability to read is based on speed? What happened to enjoying and whiling over the the worth of something worth reading?

Dan Keldsen's curator insight, October 18, 12:25 AM

Stereotypes and generalizations are just plain lazy. Do the work to understand how people behave, what the want (in reality, not what they say they want), how they react, and stop playing to the stereotypes you may have fallen into.

Joshua Matheny's comment, December 13, 12:29 PM
Morality is important to teach and is something that is almost completely skimmed over in schooling. I learned a little bit about morality growing up in a private school for most of grade school, however, this is not the norm of other schools especially public ones. As this piece said, it is important for teachers to show their ethics through teaching but not to force it onto children. Controversial is the key to whether or not they should speak out against certain things such as racism. Exploration is key to understanding the ethical world we live in and make your own decisions as to what that entails.
Karmen Louise Tobin's curator insight, December 14, 7:41 PM

WOW! This is a great and on point article. I think we have come along way since of ancestors in morals, like racism is wrong, for example. This is a very refreshing article. I do believe that teachers do need to be careful in their practice in what they are saying to our children and to keep their personal point of views out of their practice. Like mentioned in the article on religious beliefs and abortion. I know that in some schools some teachers are influencing children on "what to think and that this is the right way instead of how to think," like the title of this article says. I do see a huge difference in these perspectives. Another example I want to state is that I do not believe  a teachers practice should be telling my kids that being gay is okay. This is not their responsibility to tell my children these sort of things. I don't believe there should be opinions or judgments spoken about these things or about anything that doesn't pertain to their education and vise versa. I also believe if a teacher is discussing abortion with my child that this is wrong and inappropriate. If you were to ask my kids about God they would tell you that they love God and I think this is a good thing. There are boundaries I believe to what is appropriate. I believe our educators need to focus on what is important in education.
