These critical thinking activities are rich in language opportunities. Those listed at the end of the article will look familiar to many teachers who teach content information through English.

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
One of the most effective ways to provoke student thought is through the building of “rich” questions. By asking meaningful questions - and interacting with textual information – students can come to an understanding that builds upon on their own personal experiences and opinions. Through the use of a template, questions can be created in any way that you want and provide you with a specific platform to begin your questioning focus.

Important from the very beginning to create critical thinking

Audrey's curator insight, April 13, 2014 4:21 AM

The questions can be based on exam questions, or directly from past exam questions.  The students can be asked about their own experiences and say whether the textual information has any application to the society in which they live, e.g. How does the information help us?

Exploring education: Project Based Learning – meaningful action … or merely activity?

Exploring education: Project Based Learning – meaningful action … or merely activity? | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The world is awash with people and groups wishing to reform education.  Some want to go “back to basics” while others want to go “forward to the future”.       

 

Amongst the more progressive groups there is a surprising degree of similarity in what they propose. Thus, the RSA “Opening Minds” project in the UK or the US based P21 or the Apple Classroom of Tomorrow Today all have a high degree of overlap - indeed a Venn diagram of their views would be almost a single circle.

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 6, 2014 5:05 PM

One of my Critical Thinking Gurus is Richard Paul.  I met him in a bar in Arizona a few years before I left the classroom to teach online. We had one of the great discussions of my life. His thinking and teaching transformed my questioning style when I was a classroom teacher and seeped into my DNA when I went into online work.  Here is a series of videos available on YouTube that I would turn to if I were teaching a class devoted solely to Critical Thinking.  

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 6, 2014 6:07 PM

'Asking questions that takes thinking apart'! This is very useful as a reflection tool. I appreciate highly the connection made by Richard Paul between thinking and content.
