“Education is not the learning of the facts, but the training of the mind to think.”
—Albert Einstein


Without critical thinking, students often make assumptions without asking questions, or memorize without understanding. By teaching and modeling critical thinking skills in our K-12 classrooms, we can help all students learn how to think about the information they encounter in the classroom today and in their future at college and in the workplace.

This book provides a foundation for teaching critical thinking, including over 100 practical tools and strategies to ensure effective implementation. A variety of thinking frameworks and other research from educational leaders and researchers help to frame the practical ideas.
