The Critical Thinking Consortium

What does literacy look like in different subject areas and what are the underlying competencies that cut across all disciplines? How can we support students who struggle to read the textbook, or the data from an experiment or a musical score? This session introduces the concept of reading as thinking: "critically" constructing meaning from text. Participants will explore the competencies of critically thoughtful reading and consider a framework for enhancing literacy instruction in their classrooms.
