Critical thinking isn’t just a buzzword.

It’s a vital skill that’s in demand by employers and central to a meaningful education.

Students need to be able to find and assess accurate, credible information; to dive deeply into complex issues and see beyond the superficial solutions and either/or framing our media and culture favor; to evaluate all relevant factors and develop positive solutions that do the most good and least harm for all.

Critical thinking is essential to being an informed, engaged citizen and an effective solutionary.

We’ve created a Pinterest board of curated resources about Critical Thinking to help educators help their students hone their critical thinking skills.
