People skilled in critical thinking are:
Critical thinking is using reason to pursue the truth by:
Making distinctions between what is true, and what is not true
Considering the possible consequences of an action or an idea
Discovering the principles at the foundations of an idea
Developing your natural process of reasoning
Critical thinking skills train your mind to:
Observe a situation or object
Analyze what you've observed
Arrive at a logical conclusion
HOW DO YOU LEARN TO DO THAT WITH STORIES?
I'll walk you through how to teach critical thinking skills to your students by using stories in my lesson plans
Teaching Critical Thinking with Stories is a series of printable exercises that give you:
Planned Series of Exercises
All students can begin with the first set of exercises. When they're ready for more challenges, you can add additional levels, or incorporate the challenges in the levels
Additional Challenges to Exercises
The exercises also have additional levels to challenge students to go deeper into the story and develop their capacity for more complex thoughts. That allows you to use the same exercise for an entire class, while making adjustments for individual students who need more of an intellectual challenge
I include explanations on what abilities your students will develop as they work through the different exercises, and what foundations they’re laying so that students can learn how to think more clearly and engage in more thoughtful discussions.
These lesson plans can be used with any work of fiction
