Summary

Develop your students' critical thinking skills and prepare them to perform competitively in the classroom, on state tests, and beyond. In this book, Moore and Stanley show you how to effectively instruct your students to think on higher levels, and how to assess their progress. As states implement the Common Core State Standards, teachers have been called upon to provide higher levels of rigor in their classrooms. Moore and Stanley demonstrate critical thinking as a key approach to accomplishing this goal. They explore the benefits of critical thinking and provide the tools you need to develop and monitor critical thinking skills in the classroom. Topics include:

  • The Difference Between Higher-Level and Lower-Level Thinking
  • Writing Higher-Level Thinking Questions
  • Assessing Critical Thinking Strategies to Develop Higher-Level Thinking Skills
