The Foundation and Center for Critical Thinking aims to improve education in colleges, universities and primary through secondary schools.
This site contains critical thinking links and materials for purchase for incorporating critical thinking concepts into the classroom.
Lesson plans focus on fine-tuning search skills, how to evaluate discoveries and then incorporate findings in student work. On Gazette, a teacher named Emmy recommends five specific activities that are easy to use, take little preparation, and stimulate creative thinking.
The most popular feature of this site is its teacher collaboration. This site details the basics about critical thinking: what it is, the characteristics, and why it should be taught.
Although critical thinking and problem-solving skills are included to some extent, they are not the primary focus. We continue to teach the basics in introductory courses especially, but the primary goal is for students to use that knowledge to think critically about events, readings, speeches, ideas, and one's own perspectives across many disciplines.; PBSLM.eloqua.
