Critical thinking in the classroom involves students learning how to problem solve, analyse information and unpack ideas. It is through exercising critical thinking skills that students develop a more comprehensive understanding of a topic and learn how to apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios.
Critical Zones are agile and easily adaptable spaces that can be broken apart from larger settings. Critical Zones are focused and support both problem-solving activities and private reflective activities.
• Students become broad and adventurous thinkers
