How to build critical thinking in the classroom

‘Whenever your students discover or talk about new information, encourage them to use these questions for sparking debate and the sharing of opinions and insights among each other. Together they can work at building critical thinking skills  in a collaborative and supportive atmosphere’. [globaldigitalcitizen.org]

The Critical Thinking Skills Cheat sheet includes categories for Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How. Each section has eight questions that begin with their corresponding word. The questions are meant to be versatile and broad, and applicable to a range of topics.

In these questions, you’ll find great potential conversation starters and fillers. That said, this is obviously not a definitive list! Let them inspire your students to come up with their own questions for critical thinking skill building. [ globaldigitalcitizen.org ]
