Colleen Andjelic and Wally Diefenthaler: Embedding Critical Thinking into the New Social Studies Program of Studies (Part 1)

Duration: 5 minutes, 53 seconds

Colleen Andjelic and Wally Diefenthaler present the rationale behind infusing critical thinking into teaching and learning. A critical-thinking approach fosters an important life skill, is more motivating, promotes deeper understanding of content and supports key principles of the curriculum. (presentation at the 2007 Alberta Education Social Studies Summer Institute)
