The Critical Thinking Teacher’s Companion: A New GDCF Guide
Ever since we released the Critical Thinking Workbook last year, the response has been incredible. After over 12,000 downloads it’s still going strong, and teachers all over the world have been using it in their classrooms. So if you enjoyed the free Critical Thinking Workbook, then you’re going to love this.
With the announcement of the brand new resources section of our Solution Fluency Activity Planner, we started thinking about how we could improve on our most popular resource. How could we do an even better job of helping teachers nurture critical thinking skills in their students, and what other tools can we give them to do it? The result is an all-new premium guide full of useful critical thinking tools, the Critical Thinking Teacher’s Companion.
It’s got everything you need and more for developing and assessing critical thinking skills in your students. Expanded with cooler tools, more games, and lots of brain-boosting challenges, it’s a critical compendium for any modern teacher. It’s got the same functionality as the original guide—you can either edit the text fields right on your computer or print the pages off as worksheets.
The new Critical Thinking Teacher’s Companion is a new premium resource available with a subscription to a Teacher Professional account. If you’re already on the Planner with us you can also access it with a simple and inexpensive upgrade. It’s easy, and here’s how you do it.
Here’s what’s inside the Critical Thinking Teacher’s Companion:
- Even MORE challenging games and activities: We’ve added some new games including beginner, intermediate, and advanced mazes.
- 6 exciting project-based learning scenarios: There are 6 new scenarios for critical thinking and cross-curricular instruction, and they’re customizable to other grades and subjects as well.
- A rubric for assessing critical thinking skills: A full framework for assessing 6 vital components of critical thinking—questioning abilities, use of information, keeping an open mind, drawing conclusions, communication/collaboration, and self-awareness.
Now there’s an even better way to nurture critical thinking skills in your students. Check out the Critical Thinking Teacher’s Companion today!
