Teach Critical Thinking

Nudge them to come up with a variety of approaches: What scientific solution could address cause X? This is about teaching them to think for themselves.Your role is to direct their questions, listen and respond.Other great questions: “How will climate change affect where we live?” or “Why should our town in particular worry about climate change?

Their teacher may ask them a question like “What are the main causes of climate change?

” — which is too big for anyone to wrap their mind around — ask “How could we address and solve cause X of climate change?

” Answering this question will require kids to synthesize their knowledge. You can start this project any time on any topic; you don’t have to be an expert on what your kids are studying.

Those are great, but they’re not enough, says educator and teacher trainer Brian Oshiro.

If we want our children to have flexible minds that can readily absorb new information and respond to complex problems, he says, we need to develop their critical thinking skills.

Whenever I despair, I think of the Hobbits, and Tolkien’s world, and find comfort in, as Tolkien puts it, “the underlying reality.” Although I’d find great pleasure in studying Tolkien, and learning of him that I may learn to be a better rookie writer, he tells (warns rather) writers to learn more from stories themselves than the analysis of the stories.
