On Tuesday August 8th at 6pm pst, we will guest host #WeLeadEd chat with Dr. Rosa Perez-Isiah. #WeLeadEd is a chat about inclusive, equitable, and balanced leadership for passionate educators. We are excited to be discussing Critical Thinking As An Education Equity Issue on such a popular chat with such passionate educators because this chat will allow education leaders to share their thoughts, tools, and best practices for ensuring that critical thinking is no longer a luxury good.
Critical thinking precursor to innovation, a key to college and career readiness and has been linked to more positive life outcomes. The complex global challenges we face today have placed a peak demand for critical thinkers. But our supply is limited because critical thinking is still a luxury good: only 1 of 10 educators teach it, and it’s usually taught at the best schools or to the best students. This means that most students are taught to ask “what” and “how to” instead of “why” and “what if”, and rarely learn the habits and mindsets needed to apply critical thinking consistently. This makes access to critical thinking instruction a fundamental issue of educational equity.
We would love to have you join us at 6pm pst on our @thinkLaw twitter page as we guest host #WeLeadEd.
