Imagine you are an elementary school teacher wanting to add critical thinking to the curriculum at your school. You are preparing a presentation to deliver to the school board for your district. You want to convince them to change the way they teach thinking and to specifically address the explicit teaching of critical thinking in the elementary school setting.
• What methods could you use to
produce ideas to resolve this problem or issue?
Use logic to arrive at a conclusion. To solve virtually any problem, you can use a process of elimination—dividing the issue down until all you have left is the problem. There are four basic steps to this process:
1. Define the problem
2. [ Develop a plan
3. Implement the plan
4. Evaluate the results
Until there's an acceptable answer, you'll repeat steps 2 through 4 until
that answer has been reached. We'll use a common problem to illustrate this scenario.
There are no new answers.
