Let's Think Critically

Activities to stimulate critical thought processes

Let's Think Critically! is the third in a series of three books on thinking skills. Links between the three enable you, the teacher, to plan entire lessons or units using activities from the books.

This third book contains a selection of activities designed to improve children's skills in questioning, reasoning, attribute listing, decision-making and analytical thinking. Its particular focus is on developing skills required for deeper levels of thinking.

Activities in this resource are grouped into six sections, each of which emphasizes some of these attributes more than others. Teacher notes at the beginning of each section briefly outline the primary purpose of the activities within that section, set out teaching points, and, in some cases, offer ideas for extension activities. The latter are designed to extend the students on a particular skill or theme, but you can decide how they should be used (e.g., for early finishers or with the entire class or group). You will also find, at the very end of the book, a series of certificates that you can photocopy and distribute to the children.

Jacquie Arnold has been teaching at various levels of the primary school for the past 10 years. She became interested in thinking skills while studying for her Master of Education degree at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. During 2001-2002, Jacquie developed and taught a programme for gifted children. She believes that it is important to implement thinking skills strategies in all areas of the curriculum as a way to encourage children to question "Why?", and to think "outside the square".
