Building a Culture for Critical Thinking, with Linda Laughlin

September 13, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

This learning opportunity will focus on how to build a culture that supports learners thinking at a deeper level of content knowledge and to develop an evidenced-based reflective practice culture. Participants will share and collaborate about their efforts to develop thinking skills among their learners. This will serve as a follow-up for those who have already participated in our 3-day complex reasoning training. It will also serve as an introduction for those who have not yet been able to participate in the 3-day Complex Reasoning Training.

Recommended reading: “Making Thinking Visible: How to Promote Engagement, Understanding and Independence for All Learners” by Ron Ritchhart,Mark Church & Karin Morrison.  Available at Amazon.
