The Critical Thinking Consortium


Can we expect very young children to think critically? Don't they have to learn "the basics" first before we ask them to make reasoned judgments? How are we supposed to assess their thinking when they can't yet write? These are important questions asked every day by primary teachers. In this session, we will explore practical ways we can engage young children in thinking and nurture their ability to think while they are learning the fundamentals. We will examine concrete examples used by teachers in primary classrooms, corresponding student responses and ways of educating and supporting parents of young children.
