Cultivating Critical Thinking in Classroom

Critical thinking skills are necessary to succeed in education or in the workplace. Therefore, this ppt aims to foster independent thinking, personal autonomy and reasoned judgment in thought and action by elucidating in-depth understanding of the concept and its importance. It will help participants to explore more about Blooms taxonomy and compose well-structured instructional objectives for development of cognitive domains. Lastly, I will share assessment techniques that can be unquestionably adjusted in any lesson plan as effective measurement tools for critical thinking skills.

  20. 20. Audience • Students • Teachers • Workshop participants Behaviour Observable behavior • State • Discuss • Compare • Compose Condition • Given a list of words • Without the aid of dictionary • Equipment utilized in completion of the behavior • Environmental conditions may also be included Degree • Time limit (in 20 minutes) • Accuracy (7 out of 10 or with 80% accuracy or measured by a checklist, without error) • Word Limit
  21. 21. SAMPLE INSTRUCTIONAL OBJECTIVE WRITTEN ACCORDING TO THE ABCD METHOD 2) Given the ABCD method of objective writing, the workshop participants will be able to compose 2-3 clear and measurable objectives for a recently taught lesson. Bloomʼs: Cognitive (Analysis & Understanding) 1) Given two articles about social issues, the students will be able to deconstruct (analyse) the author's points of view, and summarize them in no more than 100 words, free of grammar errors. Bloomʼs: Cognitive (Analysis & Understanding)
  22. 22. READ THE FOLLOWING OBJECTIVES AND LABEL THE PARTS: A, audience; B, behavior ; C, condition; and D, degree Given a practical problem, the student will be able to generate several (3-5) feasible solutions. Working with peers from different nations, the student will be able to demonstrate growing cultural sensitivity as measured by a checklist.
