Teaching to Develop Critical and Creative Thinking Skills
Save to My Collections
Teaching critical and creative thinking is essential in 21st century education. These higher-order skills are primary assets in tomorrow’s workplace, but they have not been well defined. Our conceptual model is based on an extensive literature review, and shows the relationships among essential processes and characteristics of critical and creative thinkers. We provide instructional guidelines and suggest technology resources to help teachers create a classroom environment to foster critical and creative thinking skills in their students and become critical and creative thinkers themselves.
