Question and answer
Q: How did you evaluate arguments in your research for explicit teaching of critical thinking in the elementary school setting
A: Teaching critical thinking? You might wonder if kids will work it out for themselves. After all, lots of smart people have managed to think logically without formal instruction in logic. [ Moreover, studies show that kids become better learners when they are forced to explain how they solve problems. So maybe kids will discover principles of logic spontaneously, as they discuss their ideas with
others. But research hints at something else, too. Perhaps the most effective way to foster critical thinking skills is to teach those skills. Explicitly. (Abrami et al 2008). Studies suggest that students become remarkably better problem-solvers when we teach them to • analyze analogies • create categories and classify items appropriately • identify relevant information • construct and recognize valid deductive arguments • test hypotheses • recognize common reasoning fallacies • distinguish between evidence and interpretations of evidence ]
