Why I Love Project Based Learning | Powerful Learning Practice - 0 views

  • It’s not enough for students to learn a bunch of disconnected facts. They need to be able to synthesis them into a comprehensive whole and create something from what they’ve learned. Often they’ll connect them to their lives in ways we could never have imagined.

      Love this! Real-life connections contextualize learning and make it meaningful beyond the classroom experience!

How to Encourage Critical Thinking in Science and Math | Teaching Science and Math - 22 views

  •  
    Encouraging students to use critical thinking is more than an extension activity in science and math lessons, it is the basis of true learning. Teaching students how to think critically helps them move beyond basic comprehension and rote memorization. They shift to a new level of increased awareness when calculating, analyzing, problem solving, and evaluating.

Understanding Scientific Inquiry: Inquiry Involves the Use of Critical Thinking to Unde... - 7 views

  •  
    Scientific inquiry causes students to use higher order thinking skills and learn science from a minds-on approach. Inquiry's foundation originates with John Dewey. In Dewey's book Democracy in Education (1916), he indicates that education begins with the curiosity of learners. Student curiosity and involvement in scientific inquiry moves them beyond passive learning to higher order thinking.
