I’m just cross-posting this between the two blogs that I regularly contribute. Rather than Ctrl+C then Ctrl+V this, I thought I’d just send all of you via a completely painless link to another educational blog that you can then peruse a little more of. There’s some great stuff in there.
As a postscript to the above discussion, I’d like to ask: what is it that you think needs to be taught in schools about the subject or skill of ‘critical thinking’? What does the concept mean to you? Is it an important skill to teach at all?
Drop me a line!
