Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 12, 9:16 PM

We were using this language 20 years ago and now it is re-emerging. This is interesting? What if we used Judith Butler's work about identity and norms that impact identity formation? Perhaps a more critical approach to the way norms form in classrooms and School i.e. conforming and complying would be revealing.

Charles Fischer's curator insight, August 21, 8:26 AM

Fantastic article that thoroughly explores the gauge concept of critical thinking. I loved the definition that critical thinking is "the ability to disagree with yourself." Although there are plenty of definitions out there in the world (some of them not useful at all), this seems to capture the spirit if critical thinking in a succinct way.
