We've made our book, Critical Thinking for School Leaders, available as a free e-book!
Critical thinking is an essential element for preparing all learners to succeed in school and throughout their lives. As a school leader, the purpose of this resource is to provide support as you assist your teachers and others in embracing critical thinking and purposefully cultivating a thinking environment throughout the school.
Critical Thinking for School Leaders provides background knowledge about a variety of aspects of critical thinking. Developing critical thinking begins in the early grades and continues throughout the education years. In order to process the wide range of available information or content that changes almost daily, students need to learn to think critically. Learning to assess the credibility of sources, knowing when more information is needed, recognizing the need for multiple perspectives before making a decision or arriving at a solution, evaluating a situation using criteria, and forming opinions with supporting evidence are only a few of the actions students exhibit when they become independent and deeper thinkers.
Through the collection of articles and resources in this book, it is our intent to create transparency in critical thinking, resulting in the success of students, teachers, and school leaders. Together, we will make a difference.
