Encouraging Critical Thinking in the Classroom

Presented by Ric Baker
Session Type: Practice

Critical thinking is a reflective, rational process that helps people make better decisions and form beliefs that are more likely to be true. A critical thinker generally performs better academically, professionally, and personally. In this presentation, we will define critical thinking and explain what a critical thinker is like, what she can do, and what standards she holds. Then we will explore ways that critical thinking can be incorporated into the classroom and share sample assignments that encourage critical thinking; these assignments will address various subject areas. We will end with discussion and practice activities.
