|So totally stole this from the article!|
This article is called Teaching Students to Dig Deeper (very catchy I think). It actually turns out to be a blog post about this guy's book....which he actually convinces me that I should maybe look into buying it. He talks about how a lot of people mix up critical thinking with analytical thinking or give them the exact same definition. This article asserts that in order to "dig deep" or thinking critically....students have to do analyze it first. Once they understand their subject then they can think critically about it.
My question for my fellow teachers...which is why this guy wants you to read his book...is how do you give students the opportunity to follow these steps? What real-world scenarios can we give them that they can solve and think critically about?
P.S. I really should update my tabs!
