Critical thinking, prime skill to advance in life has been reduced in value throughout history. Main reason being: there was no need for it; so it was thought.
With our recent advancements in technology and science, critical thinking is on the rise with competition as its only motivator. One thought after another. One discovery after another. One invention after another... With endless limitations in sight.
It is now safe to say we have "critical thinking advocates." Fortunately, according to Scholastic, a main resource used by national school districts, has stated that "critical thinking has become a buzzword in education. In the past, the emphasis in classrooms has been on imparting information and content... In recent years, however, there's been a shift toward teaching critical thinking, a skill that elevates thinking beyond memorization into the realm of analysis and logic."
It continues to say now "teachers use a number of techniques to help students learn critical thinking." Awe-inspiring!!
The concept is easy to grasp - reality is hard to shaft.
Parents... moms... dads... grandparents, guardians and caregivers... YOU are children's primary and #1 teacher for life. Teachers change from grade to grade. What stays similar from year to year? You and only you...
Please help your children to skill in critical thinking... Throughout your breezy moments with them during the day. Help them ask questions, analyze, make decisions and deal with consequences.
