It’s one thing to teach facts. It’s another thing to have our students understand concepts, explain them and then defend their answers. This is the crux of higher-level thinking – to guide them to think outside of the box! How can we as educators and parents be intentional about developing these critical thinking skills in our children? In this workshop, Mary-Lou will share some educational tools for making this leap in your teaching.
