Weave critical thinking into lesson plans for all subjects at all grade levels with this easy-to-use wheel. Questioning prompts and useful information make this a go-to reference for teachers as they prompt deeper levels of thinking among their students.
The Critical Thinking Educator Wheel features questioning prompts based on Bloom’s Taxonomy and other information to help teachers design dynamic lesson plans. It includes definitions, Power Words for building quality lessons, and questioning prompts to stimulate thinking and spark discussion.
The wheel is also available in Spanish for educators working one-on-one with English Language Learners or teaching in bilingual classrooms.
A companion tool, the Critical Thinking Student Wheel, can be used by students to improve their thinking skills and take a more active role in their learning. Mentoring Minds also offers a professional development session that supports implementation of this wheel.

I love that the product provides questioning prompts for each level of critical thinking. Also, the included ‘power words’ that highlight each level were really helpful in developing objectives and writing questions. I love that is so portable and easy to use.
The aspect of this product that I liked the most was that each level had a 'mastery' level to it as well, which not only helped to provide ideas for questions, but different levels within the same tier.
I have just returned from serving Belize with the PathLight teacher training conference where we were able to share the Critical Thinking Wheel with the teachers. It was a fabulous tool to help them develop lessons with much more complexity and deeper thinking for their students. The hands on, quick reference will be an important part of their lesson planning resources. I have placed an order for my own wheels to use in my planning and as a support for student teachers./p>
