working for essential change in education News and Events Call for Proposals Join our World Conference... We now seek concurrent sessions proposals for the 34th International Conference which advance a substantive conception of fairminded critical thinking in instruction and in any domain of human life.
Encouraging Critical Thinking Online is a set of free teaching resources designed to develop students' analytic abilities, using the Web as source material. Two units are currently available, each consisting of a series of exercises for classroom or seminar use. Students are invited to explore the Web and find a number of sites which address the selected topic, and then, in a teacher-led group discussion, to share and discuss their findings. The exercises are designed so that they may be used either consecutively to form a short course, or individually. The resources encourage students to think carefully and critically about the information sources they use.
