#DefineCriticalThinking Winners Announced!

We’re excited to announce the winners of our #DefineCriticalThinking Challenge, a project to apply the real-life experience of classroom teaching to create new working definitions of a term that can be tricky to nail down. Our team of educators deliberated over the many, many entries that we received, but ultimately they narrowed it down to a single winner and 10 runners-up, all educators who integrated creativity and critical thinking into the definitions themselves. Read on to see the winning definitions! (If you’d like to learn more about the challenge, read the complete rules here.)

Congratulations to our grand prize winner, Denise Lonewolf, who won an iPad and classroom set of Total Motivation in addition to other classroom supplies. Here’s how she defined critical thinking:
