Annual Summer Institute: Inspiring Critical Thinking Across the Curriculum
August 27, 2019 from 9:00 am - 2:00 pm345 CDN + HST
This practical, hands-on workshop will support the development of critical thinking skills across the curriculum. We will explore a variety of disciplinary lenses and frameworks from literacy, science, math and visual arts to help students critically analyze and evaluate information presented in texts, the media and the world around them, so that they can actively think about, question and investigate what to believe and do.
Ready to use activities and resources will support:
- recognizing point of view
- detecting bias
- evaluating information and sources for reliability and validity
while increasing student engagement, thinking and learning.
