48 Critical Thinking Questions For Any Content Area -

48 Critical Thinking Questions For Any Content Area - | Education | Scoop.it
Critical thinking is the heart and soul of learning, and–in our estimation anyway–ultimately more important to than any one specific content area or subject matter.

It’s also an over-used and rather nebulous phrase — how do you teach someone to think? Of course that’s the purpose of education, but how do you effectively optimize that concept into lasting knowledge and the ability to apply it broadly?

This question is what inspires the creation of seemingly endless learning taxonomies and teaching methods: our desire to pin down a clear definition of what it means to think critically and how to introduce that skill in the classroom. This makes critical thinking questions–well, critical.

To develop critical thinking is one of the most complex task to do for teacher in terms of education. Taking into account the history of education in Colombia it is on the principals factor that we as teachers should try to improve in our students in a view of the fact that the Colombia education model do not permit involve our students in whole process to be thinkers, but the principal difficult is, How to do it?

"Why encouraging students to get everything right is the wrong direction." It is. When we did not get the right answers, I asked students what might have happened to lead to the "failure?" Having students and teachers explore those questions can be quite fruitful.

A very interesting twist on the growth mindset. What do you think?
Helena Fonseca's curator insight, May 1, 2017 8:48 AM
"I believe that truly embracing failure in our classrooms is an antidote to shallow learning. For example, students in difficult math classes in Helsinki, Finland, are expected to fail horribly at first, and the students and teachers don’t freak out about it. The students are given time and support to learn from their mistakes and make corrections. They understand that always getting the problem right or getting it right from the very start is not akin to living in the real world."

It was an interesting article! I'm actually an university student and I consider that grouping activities is the most difficult thing to work in class giving the fact that sometimes we do not  interact with all partners there are in the classroom (only the nearest). However, the author of this article makes me to reflect about the importance of when we need to work in groups. For this reason, we need to consider a lot of aspects such as strenghts, likes, dislikes, capabilities, etc. in order to increase our academic abilities. Also, this article give us a lot of strategies to implement in lessons, speacilly with kids which have a lot of abilities to learn and share with others...

Inquiry happens when you focus on the art of teaching." Kath Murdoch. 

 

After the session, I attempt to categorise the teachers’ ideas under conceptual headings. The more I think about their statements, the more my categories overlap. I consider first Kath’s shared list of inquiry practices and then Ron Ritchhart’s cultural forces. In the end it comes down to a handful of big ideas, for me…

 

Language:  Use a language of learning not compliance. Choose language that supports learners in describing and reflecting on their thinking and learning.

 

Process:  Focus as much on the process of learning as the content. Use split screen teaching. Notice and name how we are learning, not just what we are leaning.

 

Release:  Let go of your expectations and allow students to lead. Ensure the learners do the heavy lifting. Release responsibility as early as possible, then observe where to take the learning next.

 

Teacher as learner:  Position yourself as part of the learning community, not as the expert in the room, both physically and through your interactions. Make your own thinking process visible.

 

Time:   Do less, but do it more deeply. Devote time to developing learning dispositions. Give children time to reflect on how and why they change their ideas or thinking.

6 Strategies For Getting To Know Your Students

6 Strategies For Getting To Know Your Students | Education | Scoop.it
“One of our primary goals at the beginning of the school year is to get to know our students.This is important for several reasons. First, the better we know our students, and the more they know we know them, the more invested they become in school. Also, a dynamic and vigorous learning environment is built on relationships. When we create strong connections with our students, we create a learning environment where risk-taking and collaborative learning can take place. Finally, the better we know our students, the better we can help craft learning experiences that match who they are. Knowing our students is fundamental to real differentiation.”

Growth Mindset: How to Normalize Mistake Making and Struggle in Class

Growth Mindset: How to Normalize Mistake Making and Struggle in Class | Education | Scoop.it
“Carol Dweck’s research on growth mindset has become essential knowledge in education circles. The Stanford psychologist found that children who understand that their brains are malleable and can change when working through challenging problems can do better in school. Now, many school districts are attempting to teach growth mindset to their students. At the core of this practice is the idea of “productive failure” (a concept Dr. Manu Kapur has been studying for over a decade)* and giving students the time and space to work through difficult problems. Another key idea is to praise the process and effort a child puts in, not the final product.”

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area | Education | Scoop.it
“ Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another. Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does. Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features. Social Studies content can be an interesting mix of itemized information, and traditional paragraphs/imagery. Literature? Well, that depends on if you mean the flexible form of poetry, the enduring structure of a novel, or emerging digital literature that combines multiple modalities to tell a story. (Inanimate Alice, for example.)”
