Everyone is talking about the importance of critical thinking these days, but we often find it hard to define exactly what it is and how to teach it. While high-stakes tests assess some applications of critical thinking, the real-world skills a student learns through critical thinking go far beyond academic capabilities.
Joined by Deanna Kuhn, Ph.D. (Professor of Psychology and Education at Columbia University) and Barry Rodgers (Director of Innovation, Teaching and Learning at Winnetka Public Schools), ThinkCERCA Founder and CEO Eileen Murphy discuss the latest research on critical thinking, share practical applications, and provide insights into the opportunities and challenges of critical thinking instruction.
Additionally, you'll hear firsthand how the development of critical thinking skills is redesigning a school district in Illinois.
